Becoming a Court of Protection Deputy

How to become a Court of Protection Deputy

The process of applying to the Court of Protection to become a Deputy can be time consuming and confusing.  There are a significant number of Court of Protection forms that need to be completed and submitted, along with a full list of all assets such as property, shares and premium bonds.

There are also various formalities that have to be observed.  For example, when the application is made other family members and relatives have to be advised about the application.  In addition, during the process an insurance bond (“surety bond”) has to be taken out to protect the incapacitated person.

A fee exemption may be available for Court of Protection applications if the incapacitated individual has limited income or is on benefits.

We can support you through the application process or make the application for you.
