Contested Court of Protection
I do not agree with who has been appointed as Deputy / I do not agree with the decisions and actions of the Deputy – what can I do?
An application to the Court of Protection can be a complex, time-consuming and lengthy business. However, sometimes, matters can be further complicated if there are disagreements between members of the family or close friends about who should be appointed Deputy and/or the decisions and actions of the appointed Deputy.
It is possible to apply to the Court of Protection to contest the appointment of a Deputy and/or the Deputy’s decisions and actions. The Court of Protection has the power to remove a Deputy from the role, appoint a new Deputy and/or to reverse or amend a Deputy’s decision. To do this, the court must be satisfied that the Deputy is not acting in the person’s best interests and to make any changes would be in the person’s best interests.
We can help you with making this application or to defend an application made against you if you are the appointed Deputy. We can gather evidence, prepare your case and , if necessary, assist you at the court hearing.
However, these situations can be complex and we will need to understand the full facts before we will be in a position to advise you fully and plan a way forward.
