The simple definition of the Court of Protection:
The Court of Protection (Office of the Public Guardian) in English law is a superior court of record created under the Mental Capacity Act 2005. It has jurisdiction over the property, financial affairs and personal welfare of people who it determines lack mental capacity to make decisions for themselves. Mental capacity can be temporarily or permanently lost due to a serious illness or dementia.
We can professionally guide you through the process of court fees and becoming a Deputy, either for a single important decision or long term decisions.
We work with individuals and families to provide support for people whose lives have been affected by mental impairment.
