How do I apply to the Court of Protection?
To apply to the Court of Protection, you will need to complete at least four application forms alongside an accompanying doctor’s certificate. This doctor’s certificate will confirm to the court that the person in question is no longer capable of making their own decisions.
The deputyship forms you will need to complete will depend on whether you’re applying to make decisions regarding the persons:
- Health and welfare.
- Property and financial affairs.
You can apply to be deputy for one of the above or both. If the Court of Protection accepts your application, you’ll get a court order outlining your decision making powers.
