Applying for deputyship

Has anyone had experience of applying for deputyship ? Do you advise that I ask a solicitor or can I do it myself ?

Hi Helen
I’ve applied twice. Once for court of protection for my late hubby. Now just in the middle completing power of attorney for myself, so my daughter’s won’t have the worry.
I looked on line both times, sourced companies. Although you still have to pay a fee to the company they are very helpful, and will go through and check forms before going off to the guardian ship. Much cheaper than solicitor’s face to face. You of course can do it yourself online. I just found it easier to talk to someone on the telephone.
Hope this helps

Helen, who are you wanting to act for?
