The Court of Protection (COP) assists in protecting the financial affairs of people who do not have the mental capacity to do so themselves. If the person did not make provisions by creating a Lasting Power of Attorney or an Enduring Power of Attorney, then an application will need to be made to the Court of Protection for a Deputy to be appointed. A Deputy could be a family member, friend or professional and they must be over the age of 18.
