Temporary administration of goods and persons is a scheme to protect persons who are unable to manage their own property because of their physical or mental condition.
This protection scheme is intended for adults who for health reasons are not in a condition to manage their personal and property interests themselves without assistance or another protective measure. This inability can be total or partial, temporary or permanent.
Lawyers with the Lebutte & Partners legal firm specialised in the field are regularly appointed as temporary administrators by justices of the peace in Brussels. They can give pertinent advice about formalities to be carried out to place an adult under judicial protection. They can also give a critical analysis of the missions carried out by other legal appointees.
