Court of Protection

The Court of Protection offers a legal safety net for those who no longer have the mental capacity to manage on their own. This may be due to an illness such as dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, or it may be as a result of a developmental condition or brain injury.

If someone close to you has become unable to make important decisions for themselves, it may be time to step in. We can support you in making an application to the Court of Protection, whether you want to:

  • Apply to act as a deputy
  • Ask Roche Legal to act as a deputy
  • Apply for permission to make a specific decision
  • Request that a Statutory Will is made on behalf of someone who is no longer able to
  • Appeal against a decision a deputy has made
  • Contest an application for deputy made by someone else
  • Submit a rival application to become a deputy
