How Do I Apply To The Court Of Protection?

If someone you care about loses the ability to make their own decisions you can apply to the Court of Protection for permission  to make decisions for them.  To apply, there are some forms that will need to be filled in and a doctors certificate will be required to confirm to the Court that the person cannot make decisions for themselves.

It is very important that those forms are filled in properly or they will be sent back.  It can take a long time to complete the forms and it is important that you know exactly what powers you will need to apply for.  For example, you might only need the power to help your friend or relative to manage their money, or to make decisions about what treatment they receive in hospital.  Or you might need a much more general power to help them with all their financial and other decisions. 

We can help you to work out which forms you will need and we can complete them for you to make sure that they can be processed by the Court of Protection without delay
