It can be very distressing when a family member, spouse or partner becomes mentally incapacitated through illness or injury.
What happens next if they have no enduring power of attorney in place?
If that person does not have enduring powers of attorney in place then an application under the Protection of Personal and Property Rights Act 1988 to the Family Court for a welfare guardian and an order to manage the person’s property is often needed.
This can be a lengthy and confusing process which can be difficult for family members who are already under stress.
