As the Court scrutinizes every case, further information may be required from you and you may be directed to file a Supplementary Affidavit. It is not unusual for the Court to request further information or an update from the doctors in some cases.
You will be notified by the Court of the outcome of your application and of any further information that is required or documents that need to be filed. You will also be informed of when you need to come to Court for the hearing of your application.
It typically takes about 4-6 months to be appointed as a Deputy. It can take longer if the Court requires more information or if there are changes in circumstances of each case. So unforeseen factors have caused some cases to take 10-12 months to complete.
