Court of Protection Solicitors Cardiff

Redkite Solicitors Cardiff has a specialist team who have expert experience in assisting people who are not able to manage their overall well-being; their welfare, health, property and finances. The inability to make their own decisions may be due to an illness or a catastrophic injury. The legal term for this is ‘mental capacity’.

The loss of mental capacity can suddenly occur, such as a head injury. It can also occur gradually, as with dementia. If the mental capacity of a person is uncertain, an application should be submitted to the Court of Protection. The Court of Protection will assess the individual to determine whether they have the capacity to make certain decisions. If an individual is deemed not to demonstrate this on a temporary basis, then a one-off order can be implicated. On the other hand, if the court decides that the person is not capable of making a range of decisions for themselves for the foreseeable future, a Deputy will be appointed. The Deputy has the responsibility to make decisions and act in the person’s best interests, covering all of their affairs.
