Court of Protection, Deputyship & Welfare - Curtis Parkinson - Solicitors Nottingham

Court of Protection, Deputyship & Welfare

The specialist legal team at Curtis Parkinson Solicitors in Nottingham offers help and advice to families and individuals on all aspects of Court of Protection and Deputyship applications.

If an individual lacks mental capacity to manage their affairs, and has not executed a Lasting Power of Attorney, you may need to apply to become their Deputy. As a Deputy, you will be authorised by the Court of Protection to make decisions on their behalf.

Court of Protection & Deputyship Applications

Those who have suffered a serious brain injury or illness, have dementia or have severe learning disabilities may lack mental capacity. With our professional and sensitive service, we can guide you through this potentially distressing time.

There are two types of Deputyship that you can apply for:

  • Property and Financial Affairs: This is used for the purpose of paying bills and organising finances.
  • Personal Welfare: Used for making decisions about medical treatment and how someone is looked after.

A Deputyship application can take up to six months to complete and can include a Court of Application fee of up to £400.00 (fees and costs correct as at 1 July 2016). The fee may be exempted or reduced dependent upon the amount of assets and income of the person lacking capacity.

Fees at Curtis Parkinson are approximately £875.00 plus VAT, depending on the complexity of the case.

Disputes

Unfortunately there may be disputes where there is a conflict in opinion between loved ones or family members. We are also available to assist you through this process.

The team at Curtis Parkinson will work closely with you and your family to guide you through the application process. We will help you every step of the way and ultimately, allow you to focus on continuing your support of the individual.

I have consulted Roger before when needing help with litigation and dispute resolution. This time he was as helpful as ever. He was able to get to the nub of the matter and present the arguments so that the other party had to agree.
