How long does it take?
Sadly there is no easy answer to this question, as the Court of Protection is a notoriously busy (and therefore notoriously slow) Court. A straightforward application to be appointed as Deputy can take many months to be finalised, and therefore it is essential that the application is well prepared and well managed. If any errors are made in the application this can make an already very long process even longer, and we would therefore encourage anyone having to embark on an application to the Court or Protection to contact us without delay so that we can advise and assist with getting the right order for you as swiftly as possible.
How much does it cost?
