When parents are unable to look after their child, you could find yourself looking after them. You could then consider applying to the court for a Special Guardianship Order. If granted the court would appoint you as a "Special Guardian" and you would acquire Enhanced Parental Responsibility for the child in your care.
Our specialist lawyers are experienced in dealing with Special Guardianship Orders, whether you are the party seeking an Order or opposing an Order. We provide advice, assistance and support throughout the process in a way in which can easily be understood.
