COURT OF PROTECTION
When a loved one is no longer able to make decisions for themselves, it may be necessary to apply to the Court of Protection, so you can act on their behalf. Stratford Solicitors can help you do this, so you can protect the interests of your family.
When a loved one cannot manage their own interests, you can be appointed to take care of their matters for them. This will require you to make an application to the Court of Protection so you can become a deputy.
Applying for deputyship can be a complex task, as can understanding exactly what your rights and responsibilities are. At Stratford Solicitors, we can help you through the application process, as well as be an ongoing source of advice and support once you take on the role.
As a deputy, you will be able to make decisions regarding your loved one’s finances and personal welfare, so it’s important to find a solicitor who will be able to provide strong advice that you can use for the benefit of those closest to you.
Our range of services help you to:
- Gain permission to sell property
- Manage financial affairs (such as operating bank accounts and resolving tax issues)
- Make changes to last will and testaments
