Objection to deputy / Removal of deputy


You may be concerned about the application of a person to be appointed as a deputy for a person lacking capacity to manage their own financial affairs or wish to apply for the removal of a deputy already appointed. It could be that you feel a deputy is not needed at all.

The Court of Protection can revoke the appointment of a deputy if it is satisfied that the deputy has behaved, is behaving, or is proposing to behave in a way that would contravene their authority as deputy. A deputy can also be removed if they have behaved, are behaving, or proposing to behave in a way that would not be in the best interests of the person whose affairs they are managing.

If you are considering an application then please contact us to discuss this further.
