More about applying to the Court of Protection

Access Legal can help you with the completion of forms when applying to the Court of Protection. The forms required depend, to a certain degree, on the patient's circumstances and what order you are asking the Court of Protection to make. In most instances, the following documents will be required:

Making sure these forms are completed properly is important as making an application to the COP is not cheap. Supervision fees that are levied on Deputies and charged by the OPG were restructured in October 2011 – before that, each level of supervision was charged at a different fee rate. The four levels of supervision remained unchanged and they are now a flat rate of £320. 

An emergency application to the Court of Protection can also be made to obtain an emergency Court of Protection Order.
