In certain circumstances family members and loved ones may no longer have the mental capacity required to make important decisions regarding their finances. In this instance it may be necessary to make an application to the Court of Protection.
The Court of Protection is the judicial body responsible for making decisions relating to the management of finances and other affairs of those individuals who lack the mental capacity to do so themselves.
