Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
What is it that you would like to know?
Do the Doctors say that she actually has Mental Capacity?
Is she ever in a position where she does NOT have capacity?
Has she ever been sectioned?
When was the last time?
Would she be willing to sign a Lasting Power of Attorney in your favour?
YOU can only do this if you are appointed as her Deputy
My concern is that the process can be a long one and given the fluctuating nature of the disability your daughter may well be "better" when the Order finally comes to be made
However the Court of Protection does have other powers that may be of use
and sadly this is the only potential option you have
Please ask if you need further details
You are most welcome i hope all goes well
