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.

Services include:

  • Advising and assisting where a family member or friend has not made a Power of Attorney and is no longer capable of managing their own financial affairs
  • Drafting and lodging the appropriate application to the Court for a Deputy or Joint Deputies to be appointed (whether the proposed Deputy is a family member and/or a professional)
  • Advise on further Court of Protection applications required under terms of an existing Deputyship Order. For example to:
    • Obtain authority to sell or purchase freehold or leasehold property.
    • Obtain authority to make gifts and to make provision for estate planning.
    • Statutory Will applications.
