Ward of Court Applications
        
In circumstances where a friend or relative has become mentally incapacitated and is unable to manage their affairs and assets, a substantial legal difficulty can arise, in particular if for example the property and assets of that person need to be sold or accessed in some way to provide for the care of the owner of the assets.
      
In such circumstances, it may be necessary for a friend or relative or any person close to someone suffering such a mental incapacity, to apply to the High Court to have the person taken into the care of the Court and for the applicant to be appointed as “Committee” in the estate of the incapacitated person.
      
If the High Court Order is made taking that person into the care of the Court, the Committee will then submit proposals to the High Court for the management of the assets of the incapacitated person.
      
If you feel that it may be necessary to make such an application, we can guide you through the process necessary, beginning with obtaining two Medical Affidavits from two Medical Practitioners attending the incapacitated person and thereafter submitting the application to the Wards of Court office and appearing on your behalf at the Hearing of the application in the High Court list.
        
We have acted on behalf of a substantial number of applicants in these matters and will ensure that the application is dealt with expeditiously and sympathetically so that the best interests of the incapacited person are always served.
