How we can help you
If someone has lost capacity to make decisions, it's not possible to sign a Power of Attorney. Alternatively, you may be caring for a child with a learning disability, or other condition which affects their capacity, who is approaching the age of 16 and it is necessary to apply for a Guardianship order in order to have legal authority make decisions on behalf of the young adult.
If someone doesn’t have a Power of Attorney, banks and other organisations (like care homes) won't let their loved ones deal with their affairs for them, and this can cause practical and financial problems. While the law provides solutions, the procedures involved can be daunting, especially at a time when you may already feel distressed. Our expert advice will help you make sure your loved one's affairs (both personal and financial) are properly dealt with - and relieve some of the pressure on you, too.
