Deputyship Relinquishment

Only the Court of Protection can decide if it is deemed appropriate for a deputyshi to be relinquished. A deputy is appointed by a court order and only the Court can decide who that should be. The process of appointing a deputy can take many months but if the relationship isn’t working you are not obliged to stay with the same deputy. As with any relationship, there can be a clash of personalities and sometimes change is necessary.

To discuss a case or personal circumstances please send an email to or call our team on 01928 237194 in confidence. We will be happy to discuss all of the options available.
