An application for a Special Guardianship Order (SGO) is often made in times of turmoil and stress. For example, a grandparent may make an SGO application because a child’s parents cannot provide adequate care because of addiction or mental health problems. Foster carers who plan to look after a child long-term are also encouraged to apply for an SGO to help the child feel secure.
At RVS Solicitors, our family law team understand SGO’s and will ensure your application is made correctly. If you suspect having an SGO in place will be of benefit to a particular child, we will provide you with the advice and support you need.
We are members of Resolution and follow their Code of Practice which focuses on resolving family disputes in a non-confrontational and peaceful way. This is especially important when making applications for an SGO where family relationships may already be strained. Our Our philosophy is based on helping clients resolve disputes in a calm, respectful manner, which has been proven to lead to long-lasting agreements and improved communication between family members.
