The Court is usually willing to appoint a family member to act as Deputy as long as they:

  • Are over 18 years of age;
  • Are not bankrupt; and
  • There is no objection from other concerned parties.

In certain instances, such as where a large personal injury settlement is due to be received, the Court may prefer to appoint a Professional Deputy (generally a solicitor) who is experienced at handling large sums of money and dealing with complex financial arrangements, such as the employment of carers.
