My sister and I are applying to the court of protection to become our mother's deputies because she declined to make a lasting power of attorney and no longer has the mental capacity to make decisions for herself. This is the first time my sister and I will be working together and will have to work together with the oversight of the OPG. To me it looks like the application process is very much a 'one step at a time' with the OPG sending out details of what you can and cannot do and placing a level of supervision upon you. My question i suppose is , has any one any experience of performing this role with another family member. I am wondering just how easy or difficult it is for two people to fullfil the role of deputy. Especially if the OPG require you to write a report and include details of how you managed their money. I am beginning to understand why i was told that generally the OPG prefer one person in this role althogu they can accept two. Is there any one who has successfully managed a joint deputy role with another familly member. if so i would certanly like to know how they manged this. is it easy for two people to do perform this role ? Any views at all would be most welcome.
