Guardianship and a court

The incapacity may be related to an illness suffered by some older people (e.g.dementia), or the result of an accident or negligence (brain injury) or of mental illness (schizophrenia).

When the Court has considered the application, it may appoint someone, called a Receiver, to manage and administer the person's affairs whilst they are unable to do so themselves. If you are the Receiver we will assist and support you in completing your duties and work with you to ensure that together we promote the best interests of the person with mental incapacity.

You can find out more about this matter on the international law forum in the following countries:
