The Court of Protection makes decisions on behalf of people who lack the ability (mental capacity) to make decisions. We are experts in assisting people who require a decision from the court, whether it is obtaining the authority to manage a parent’s finances when they have advanced dementia or where there is a dispute between family members and the local authority as to where someone should live.
These issues can be very troubling; we will listen to your problems and offer you practical guidance on how we can help.
You may also have concerns about a loved one, who cannot speak for themselves, and whether the care they receive is in their best interests. For example, they may not be allowed to leave a nursing home. We can advise on what steps can be taken to ensure that actions are taken which are clearly in their best interests.
