Ashtons Legal has a specialist Court of Protection team of expertise in advising upon, for example, the registration of lasting or enduring powers of attorney, application for the appointment of a deputy or the makings of a statutory will.
Occasionally such applications become contentious, with family members disputing the financial or welfare needs of the individual lacking capacity.
Other disputes arise in connection with lasting or enduring powers of attorney:
- Their validity can be challenged or interested parties can object to their registration or to the conduct of the attorney or deputy appointed.
If you are affected by such issues or would like further information, please contact Polly Stephenson on 01473 261356.
