Application to Court of Protection
Dispute Resolution case report
We were instructed by Mrs D, who resided in
Spain. Her mother suffered from dementia and was in a care
home in the UK. Our client's sister was the
appointee for their parents.
Our client had concerns that her
sister was not acting in their mother’s best interest, both in
terms of financial and welfare decisions. We requested
that the sister step down from her position as appointee,
however she refused.
Therefore we made an application to the
Court of Protection on behalf of our client to become Deputy
for her mother. The application required a medical report and
extensive detail on the affairs of the client’s mother. This
was successful and our client was appointed Deputy for her
mother, allowing her to make decisions for her mother in
her best interest.
