If your child receives compensation and doesn’t have the capacity to make a Will, a Statutory Will should be considered once they are 18 years old.
If you’re acting as a Deputy or Attorney of a loved ones’ estate, you may be involved in the process of creating a Statutory Will. These types of Wills can be complex, but we can help you every step of the way.
To make a Statutory Will on behalf of your child, you need to complete an application form and a statement, to be considered by the Court of Protection. A decision is made by them as to whether the proposed Will is appropriate.
Our Court of Protection team can help with services, including Deputyships, Compensation Management, Trusts (for children as well as adults), Lasting Powers of Attorney and Statutory Wills.
