Capacity to Marry / Civil Partnership
Entering into a civil partnership or marriage, for many of us, is an important day, that’s why we aim to ensure we take every practicable step in supporting you to make your own decision.
Our Social Workers ensure their assessments are compliant with the Mental Capacity Act (2005) and relevant case-law Southwark v KA (2016). The decisions to marry is not something to be taken lightly, and we ensure we don’t add to any stress by ensuring you have an outcome to the assessment on the day the assessment takes place.
All of our Capacity to Marry / Civil Partnership assessment include a Montreal Cognitive Assessment at no additional charge.
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.
