A deputyship order gives a person the ability to make decisions on behalf of someone who lacks the capacity to make important legal decisions. At Blythe Liggins, we understand that caring for an individual who lacks capacity can be difficult. This can be made even more so if the individual does not have a Lasting Power of Attorney in place.
In these cases, a Deputy can often be appointed by the Court of Protection. This can be one or more of a number of people such as a friend or relative (over the age of 18) or a legal professional. The Deputy will be authorised by the Court to make certain financial and welfare decisions on behalf of the individual
