The Attorney Forms You Need, Without The Hassle...
We take a lot of things for granted. Such as the ability to continually take decisions for ourselves and to be able to manage our day-to-day affairs. But fate is fickle, to which the thousands of people currently being cared for in our hospitals are testimony. FACT: There were over 760,000 emergency admissions to hospitals across London between April 2011-March 2012!
We also take for granted that if our spouse, partner or parent were the ones requiring our help as a result of a serious accident or illness that the law would work to allow this. HOWEVER, WITHOUT PLANNING THIS SIMPLY WON'T BE THE CASE!
Under the law in England & Wales the State, through the Court of Protection, AUTOMATICALLY assumes control of a person's affairs by default if they lose mental capacity without having previously drafted or registered LPA Forms. The fact that the person may be married, or have adult children who could otherwise assist them, doesn't matter.
