Gorvins Approach to Court of Protection

Our highly skilled court of protection solicitors and application team will help you every step of the way when it comes to making an application for deputyship. With our experience and knowledge, we can guide you through the criteria that you will need to meet in order to satisfy the court of your suitability to act on the behalf of your loved one. We can have a dedicated team of Power of Attorney Solicitors to offer advice if the worst should happen.

Making an application to the court of protection requires the use of a lawyer who really does know what they are talking about to ensure that the best advice. Our experience ranges from representing people who have been involved in serious, life-threatening accidents to deputyship for the elderly who may be suffering from Dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.

When do I have to apply to the Court of Protection?

When somebody lacks mental capability to manage their own affairs and a lasting power of attorney has not been put in place, the court of protection will appoint a deputy to look after and manage that person’s affairs

The Court doesn’t just hand over their duties to anyone; instead, an application needs to be made where the court is completely satisfied that the right person or people are being appointed.

How Can our Court of Protection Solicitors and Application team Help?

Our expert team of will & probate solicitors understand the difficulties and sensitivities involved in acting as a professional Court of Protection Deputy and so Gorvins have the trained personnel to be able to make your deputyship application smooth and as efficient as possible.

We have experience of preparing annual accounts to the Office of the Public Guardian, preparing home tax returns, employing carers and support workers as well as dealing with care home fees. We can also help prepare statutory wills when some no longer have the capacity to make one or their will is out of date.

The court of protection Solicitors at Gorvins are recognised experts in this field and we treat each deputyship case individually and ensure you get the right advice for your family’s circumstances.
