How do I register a Court of Protection order?
Alternatively, certain professionals - such as a UK lawyer, banker, accountant, doctor, dentist, teacher, MP or someone in similar positions of authority - can certify photocopies of the Court of Protection order. They will need to state: “I certify that this is a true copy of the original document”. If the document includes a photograph, the certified copy should also state “the photograph bears a good likeness to the individual”. Full details (full name, address, occupation, position and contact telephone number) of the person that has completed the certification must also be included. If you visit one of our branches with your documentation, we will arrange to have the Court of Protection order sent to our dedicated team.
To send these documents to us directly via post, please send them to:
