What Is The Court Of Protection?
The Court of Protection looks after the rights of people without the mental capacity to make their own decisions about their finances, assets, or welfare.
This may be an elderly person, someone who has suffered problems as a result of an accident, or someone suffering from mental illness.
What We Will Do For You
We have a team which specialises in providing legal support for vulnerable people.
Passmores Solicitors works with families and care providers to safeguard the finances and welfare of those who need assistance, and lack the necessary mental capacity to make decisions themselves.
We also work closely with charities and local authorities, making sure our clients’ finances are managed appropriately and in accordance with the powers granted by the Court.
Our solicitors can advise, make applications to the Court of Protection, act as professional deputies, to support lay deputies, to assist with existing Court of Protection Orders and to deal with disputed Court of Protection matters.
We’re experts who help our clients through the complex rules and laws surrounding the care of a person who needs to be looked after by the Court of Protection and can guide you through the application from beginning to end.
We recommend talking to a trained expert solicitor in this field to ensure you safeguard the interests of the person who needs help, whether a financial order is required or a health and welfare order.
