Focussing on the question as clarified in the discussion box:

The incompetent person's rights are "established" by the law. They are "exercised" by the legally-appointed tutor/curator (or other term, depending on the jurisdiction).

autorización para disponer derechos de incapaces
--> (for example)
authorisation to exercise the rights of an incompetent person

Re Asker's note below:
The translation of "incapaces" is OT with regard to the core term queried in this question: "disponer".

I mentioned already that the term used for the person who exercises the rights in question will depend on the jurisdiction. That is also true of the person who is considered "incapaz".

The most adequate terminology will also depend on the wider context. For example, a person might be legally "incapaz" simply because of their young age (minors), or because of the effects of advanced years (senility, etc.). In some jurisdictions "ward" would be reserved for minors (who are usually "wards" only until they reach the age of majority - i.e., wardship is usually temporary), whilst "incompetents" whould be used for adults who lose their right to self-determination (and who, once thus classified, usually cannot revert to "competence").

You will need to examine the ST carefully before assuming that "ward" is appropriate in your context.
