Special Guardianship Orders

Special Guardianship Solicitors

The purpose of a Special Guardianship Order is to enable children, who may otherwise be adopted or remain in the care system to be cared for by members of their own family or others approved to care for them. A Special Guardian cannot be the parent of the child and must be over 18 years old.

The effect of a Special Guardianship Order is that the Special Guardian can make decisions relating to the child without having to consult the child’s parents as to each decision that is made. This can be particularly useful in cases whereby decisions relating to a child’s future would not be made in a timely fashion if the child’s parents had to be consulted. It can also be useful in cases where a child’s parents, for whatever reason, may not always act in the best interests of their child.
