You may get into a situation that means that you cannot manage your own finances anymore, for example if you have debts because of unemployment, illness or divorce. The judge can appoint an administrator for you. This administrator will help you to manage your finances.
You can also apply for limited administration. This means that the administrator only manages some of your finances, for example your savings or your home. The administrator can be one of your family members, a friend or someone you know.
Annual check by the judge
You may feel sad, worried, angry, guilty or ashamed if your finances are placed under administration, because you cannot make decisions about your finances anymore. It may also be difficult for you to trust the administrator who is in charge of your finances. It may help you to know that the judge checks every year to make sure your administrator is managing your finances properly.
