Not sure how much information I can give you as a direction order was made in the Court of Protection regarding confidentiality.
So I guess it will be generalities.
My aged parent is living in a care home whilst an application is made to the Court of Protection as to (essentially) residence.(My brother thinks she should live in a home but I have offered her a home outside the UK. A DOLS order has been put in place.
My mother's solicitors have challenged the DOLS order . (Section 21a Mental Capacity Act 2005.
I have been named as an interested party & asked to complete a COP form 5 indicating my wish to be joined & contest the proceedings. Surely it should be joined OR contest the proceedings.
Hence my original question. My Mother's solicitors have said they cannot advise as there might be a conflict of interest.Since I approached them in the first place I fail to see the problem.
Can I have a reply please?
