Court of Protection and Lasting Powers of Attorney
Court of Protection
The Court of Protection is an organisation which is created to assist needy and vulnerable people which include mainly elderly persons who have lost or are in the process of losing their mental capacity or persons who are unable to manage and deal with their personal and administrative matters;
THE COURT OF PROTECTION ASSIST IN THE FOLLOWING WAYS;
- They help people in making decisions in relation to their Financial (Property or Financial Affairs) or Welfare (Health and Welfare) Matters where anyone is unable to make such decisions, for example where one lacks capacity to make their own decisions.
- The Court of Protection has the Power to Appoint ‘Deputies’ to take decisions for the ‘Doner’ giver of the power and the Court of Protection has the power to remove the Deputy if they misuse their powers.
- There is often the need which arises, to prepare the Application to apply for a Deputyship Order. A Deputyship Order is where the Donor has lost their mental capacity fully and their family members or Attorneys are required to apply for a Deputyship order so the Deputy can deal with the property or health related affairs of the Donor once the Court of Protection makes such orders.
- They also assess the validity of the Powers of Attorney and hear any objections to The Lasting Powers of Attorney and Enduring Powers of Attorney, and even deal with matters where an Attorney has not handled the Affairs in his capacity as Attorney either properly or ethically.
