The Court of Protection Rules 2007 set out the new procedures to be followed in the reconstructed Court of Protection which was created under section 45 of the Mental Capacity Act 2005. Practitioners who would like to have more information about these new procedures and forms can obtain a booklet numbered COP42 “Making an Application to the Court of Protection” from the Office of the Public Guardian. COP1 starts proceedings and specifies the order which the applicant seeks. COP1A is filed with the court where the application relates to property and affairs. COP1B is filed with COP1 in relation to personal welfare. COP2 may also need to be filed with COP1 where permission is required. COP3 is also filed with COP1, where an assessment of the individual’s capacity is required. COP4 is filed with COP1 when the applicant is asking the court to appoint a deputy. COP5 must be filed by parties who want to take part in proceedings. COP7 is used to object to the registration of a lasting power of attorney and COP 8 can be used to object to the registration of an enduring power of attorney. COP9 is used for certain types of applications and COP10 by people who want to join proceedings who did not originally receive notification on COP1. COP14 is used to explain the nature of the proceedings to a person who lacks capacity to understand the matter for which notification is provided. COP15 informs interested third parties that a document has been served or notification provided. COP20 must be filed with the court to confirm that a document has been served or notification provided. COP35 is used to appeal against a decision and COP36 is used by respondents in an appeal. COP37 is used by appellants and respondents in support of their appeal. st The existing Court of Protection forms CP NOTLET, CPRECDEC and CP28 became obsolete on 1 October.
