A solicitor he consulted about the divorce decided he needed a capacity assessment when this was suggested to her by his sister who accompanied him to the appointment. He went to see a clinical psychologist not realising why she wanted this. He has received no letters as these have all gone to his sister. The first he realised what was happening was when the estate agent selling his property (he was moving in a jointly owned property at his request) called him to say he had received a letter saying that he had been found not to have capacity to conduct his financial affairs and an application had been made to the CofP for a deputy to be appointed so the house had to come off the market. His solicitor was asked to visit him today and for his daughters to be there to help him understand what was happening and she refused to allow them to stay. He is very unhappy and we feel his rights are being infringed. As further information, I have received a letter today to say he is consenting to the divorce and is considered to have capacity re the divorce but not financial elements so she is applying to the Court and to the Family court for his sister to be both a deputy and litigation friend. She also says he can't pay his legal bill and I have to send her £15,000. We are both now distraught, please help.
No they could if acceptable,
I believe so, I have had a letter saying they are applying to the Court of protection for her to be appointed his deputy.
