What is a Deputy under the Mental Capacity Act in Singapore?
A Deputy is someone who has been appointed by the Family Justice Court to manage the personal and financial affairs of a person who has lost mental capacity. The Deputy is usually a family member.
The Deputy makes decisions on matters such as where the person lives, what medical treatment he/she receives. The Deputy also controls the finances.
Our experienced solicitors can help you to apply to the court for you to become a Deputy. An application may take about 6 months as the court needs to be fully satisfied that a Deputy appointment is necessary.
