Deputyship Orders NORWICH, NORFOLK
What are Deputyship Orders?
A deputyship order is a legal order that appoints someone to make decisions on behalf of an individual who lacks the mental capacity to make decisions for themselves. In the United Kingdom, deputyship orders are used when an individual has not made a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) and has lost the mental capacity to make decisions for themselves.
It’s worth noting that deputyship orders can be a complex and expensive legal process, and they may not always align with the individual’s wishes. For this reason, it’s generally recommended that individuals make an LPA while they still have mental capacity, in order to ensure that their wishes are taken into account if they were to lose capacity in the future.
It is also possible to obtain a deputyship order over someone’s health and wellbeing, however, these are much more rare than the financial deputyship orders.
