A lack of mental capacity can arise as a result of an illness, severe learning disabilities or following an accident and contrary to common opinion can affect people at any time of life.
In instances when an individual has lost capacity, the case may well be referred to the Court of Protection for a Judge to make a decision on what the best course of action is in the circumstances.
Whether the case relates to an individual’s health, welfare or finances, OGR Stock Denton’s specialist solicitors can advise you on how the court operates and some of the key issues you need to be aware of.
Situations where our team are able to offer support include.
- If you are worried about your own mental capacity or that of someone close to you
- If you have been appointed to make decisions on someone else’s behalf
- If you are concerned about the type of decisions being made for someone else.
We take pride in a sympathetic approach to what can often be a distressing set of circumstances and will work closely with you to discuss the full range of options available. The firm can also advise on the preparation of Lasting Power of Attorney.
