Capacity to conduct proceedings (litigation)

The capacity to litigate can be known as the capacity to engage in court proceedings.

We have created a bespoke assessment report for recording the assessment of the mental capacity of an adult to conduct their own proceedings (‘litigation capacity’) where that adult is a party or intended party to proceedings in the Family Court, the High Court, a county court or the Court of Appeal.

We have worked with the official solicitors to create a bespoke assessment that incorporates a Montreal cognitive assessment (Moca) and, where practical, a 
financial vulnerability assessment to ensure our assessments are evidenced-based and client 
focussed. 

Our assessors are accredited MoCA Assessors with specific experience in completing the capacity to engage in court proceedings.

In Person Mental Capacity Assessment

Our assessors ensure any assessment is therapeutic in nature, the Mental Capacity Act (2005) promotes the concept of supporting people to make their own decisions, it's not about removing your ability to make decisions.

 

Our assessments usually take place in the individuals home, whether this is a private residence or a care home, although on occasion it's necessary for assessments to take place in hospitals or in private organised rooms such as hotel meeting rooms.

 

An assessment, will, on average take approximately 1 hour and our experienced Social Workers try to ensure it is a comfortable and relaxed experience, its important to us that the individual feels confident enough to engage with us, as it is only that way we can get a true understanding of someone’s capacity.
