Solicitors for special guardianship orders
Sometimes there is a crisis in the family home, and it is necessary for the children to be looked after by someone else, often a close friend or family member.
In most cases, this is for a short time; in others, a more permanent solution is needed. At this point, a Special Guardianship Order (SGO) may be considered.
Applying for an SGO is a big decision, and it’s important to get the right information and support before deciding to apply.
Our experienced family lawyers offer clear, sound legal advice on SGOs and can talk you through the considerations you need to make before deciding if this is the correct order for you and the child.
We will help you to obtain a Special Guardianship assessment, draft the application to the court and attend the court hearings that follow.
