How to apply for a special guardianship order?

You will need to go through an assessment programme by your local authority’s children’s services department to ensure that an SGO is in the child’s best interests. They will investigate and prepare a report for the court.

You can make an application for an order here and a supporting statement here https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/form-c13a-supplement-for-an-application-for-a-special-guardianship-order 

However, the laws surrounding SGOs are complex, and we strongly recommend that you seek legal advice
