I apologise for the delay in responding to you do you wish to be the sole deputy or would you be happy to joint deputy with your brother?
I would like to be joint deputy
Thank you , you can apply to become a deputy together with your brother. As such acknowledge saying that you do not oppose but wish to be joint deputy and issue your own application.
I hope this helps. If there are any further points please reply.
I have already made application to the court to give us more time to speak with my brother and rest of the family.
Can I still make the application o become the Deputy or wait to hear the outcome of my application from the court ?
You can make the application but state that it is to protect your position or await the results of your discussions since an application does not have a time limit attached.
