How long does it take for the Court of Protection to appoint a deputy?

It usually takes around four to six months for the Court of Protection to appoint a deputy. It can take longer if the Court decides it requires more information to be able to appoint a deputy. To avoid this happening, or any other delays, all forms must be filled out correctly, and all the relevant information provided to the Court with the application.

In some cases, you can make an urgent application and request that the Court expedite existing applications. Urgent applications are usually considered where someone may lose a lot of money or where their physical or mental condition may deteriorate considerably if a decision is not made quickly.
