Special Guardianship Orders

A Special Guardianship Order (SGO) is a court order under the Children Act 1989 that places a child in the care of someone who is not their biological parent and can determine who has Parental Responsibility. This type of order often comes into play during particularly difficult periods in a child’s life, ensuring their continued well-being and stability.

At Onions & Davies, our family law solicitors approach every case with empathy, understanding, and a keen focus on the child’s best interests. We are skilled at guiding you through the complex matters surrounding SGOs, providing you with the advice and support you need regarding making an application for a special guardianship order or if an application is to be made in respect of your child.
