Specialist assistance throughout the Court of Protection process

Wrigleys assists clients to support the Deputy and their family through the Court of Protection process.

The Court of Protection is responsible for making decisions relating to the financial and other affairs of individuals who lack the mental capacity to do so themselves.

Wrigleys are experts in making applications to the Court of Protection in these circumstances. We help people who are responsible for others or who may be worried about their own ability to manage their personal affairs.
