Hello folks. My Second post! Mum has lost mental capacity, she has mid stage alzheimers, and it has been suggested that as POA was never put in place, I should apply for Deputyship. I have downloaded reams of paperwork and am just about to fill in some forms (assisted by my two cats who ALWAYS lay on top of interesting looking paperwork!) I would appreciate knowing if any of you have gone down the route of DIY form filling - it does seem quite complex, but I do have some notes to read. First stumbling block is trying to decipher if I need to have permission or not! should be easy I know (section 6) Second stumbling block is, who signs the form, me? or a solicitor? Lol daft questions maybe, and just another hurdle for me to jump over for dear old mum!!
