Special Guardianship Order
Child Care Proceedings
When there’s a crisis in the family home, and it’s in the best interests of a child to be cared for by someone else, Cartwright King can support you where there is an application for a Special Guardianship Order (SGO).
We can help parents, family members, foster carers or any guardian of a child with SGO applications, and help bring stability and security to the lives of children.
Call us now for immediate action.
Here When You Need Us Most
When you need us, we’ll be there, doing everything we can to help families where there is a family crisis or concerns about children’s safety. Cartwright King handles all cases involving children sensitively and without judgement.
We will work alongside you, giving you clear, sensible and straightforward advice as we support you and represent you to deal with a Special Guardianship Order application. We’re here to listen to your worries, advise you on the SGO process and above all, look out for the best interests of you and the children.
What matters to us is making sure that whether you are applying for a SGO, or whether someone is applying in respect of the children, you are treated fairly, you understand what is happening and that your voice is heard.
Who We Can Help With a Special Guardianship Order
Whether you are looking to make an application for special guardianship, or whether you are a parent seeking to argue against a Special Guardianship Order being made, we can help.
Cartwright King has helped many people with connections to a child become Special Guardians, including:
- Extended family members (including Aunts and Uncles)
- Family friends
- Foster carers
We can advise you on what to expect in terms of practical and financial support from your Local Authority and guide you through the process of becoming special guardians.
We help to diffuse and minimise any distress that could further affect a child or the family, bringing a calm, collected approach to matters. Our Children’s Law Solicitors have been helping families for years.
Cartwright King can help parents who find that their children may be placed away from their care under a Special Guardianship Order. If problems arise after a Special Guardianship Order is made, our experienced Children’s Law Solicitors can help – including giving advice on seeing your children if a SGO is made.
