There may come a time when a family member or a friend may lose the mental capacity required to make important decisions regarding their finances, property, or health and welfare decisions. We understand the pressure this can put on family and friends, which is why our dedicated team of court of protection lawyers can help guide you through this difficult and emotional situation every step of the way.
The objective is to ensure that someone becomes legally accountable and responsible for making decisions for the incapacitated person’s affairs. Getting the right legal framework in place means that the individual’s finances and property can be properly managed in their best interests, and any health or welfare decisions can be made by the most appropriate person.
