Lasting Powers of Attorney and Court of Protection
With individuals living increasingly longer you may want to look at planning for your future. By preparing a Lasting Power of Attorney, you can appoint someone to help you make decisions and choices about your future care needs. A Lasting Power of Attorney is a legal tool which allows someone that you have chosen to make decisions on your behalf in relation to both your health and finances.
Here at John Morse Solicitors we can advise you on how to prepare this paperwork and consider your options.
There may be an instance where family members can no longer make decisions for themselves and have already lost capacity to make a Lasting Power of Attorney. There are a number of reasons for this including dementia, mental health problems or brain injuries. Should this happen in the absence of a Lasting Power of Attorney then a Deputy may need to be appointed by the court to give legal authority to make certain decisions on behalf of someone who lacks capacity.
Here at John Morse Solicitors we have made many applications to the Court of Protection for Deputyship Orders, we have also acted as professional Deputies and assisted in the ongoing management of patient affairs.
Our services include:
