Good afternoon, I am sorry to hear about your daughter. You can apply for the Court of Protection Deputyship Order yourself, but most people find the forms very confusing. This is the website.

https://www.gov.uk/become-deputy/apply-deputy

Alternatively any solicitor can make the application for you - there are fixed costs of roughly £1,000 plus VAT plus the court application fee of £365, with no VAT.

If you prefer to use a solicitor then I would be happy to assist.

Kind regards

Marian
