Mental Capacity and the Court Of Protection

When people are unable to help make their own decisions due to a lack of mental capacity, then the Court of Protection is there to administer their affairs.

Worried about making an application to the Court?

The Court of Protection is a High Court division, and applications can appear intimidating, impersonal and complex. So as well as handling the formalities of Court applications, we also offer you practical and reassuring advice for:

  • Dealing with the Court
  • Implementing the Orders that the Court can make

  • Make matters straightforward and simple for you
  • Minimise your worry and concern
