Special Guardianship Order
A Special Guardianship Order is an order appointing one or more individuals to be a child’s ‘special guardian’. This gives a carer overriding parental responsibility.
These orders are useful if a link is to be maintained between a child and their natural birth family.
Special Guardianship Orders are often supported by the Local Authority and they provide access to support services including financial assistance.
If you are asked by a Local Authority to apply for a Special Guardianship Order, contact our Child Law experts. We often negotiate financial support for your application with the Local Authority.
