Children guardian

Postby Nannyloves2 » Tue Oct 09, 2018 8:47 pm

Hi I've been assessed for sgo and got a positive. I've since received a call from the children guardian. She said she needs to come to my home to speak to husband and I. Is this part of the process?

Dear Nannyloves2

Thank you for posting and welcome to the family and friends carers discussion board. My name s Suzie, online adviser at Family Rights Group.

It is really good that you have had a positive assessment for a special guardianship order.

You want to know if it is part of the process for the children’s guardian to visit your home to speak to you and your husband. The short answer is yes. The children’s guardian’s role is to consider the welfare of children and report to the court. It is important that the guardian supports a placement with you and your husband as being a good one for the children concerned. The guardian represents the interests of the children and their views carries a lot of weight with the judge.

If a judge makes a decision which rejects the guardian’s recommendation the judge has to gives his or her reasons for doing so.
Please read our advice sheets relating to DIY Special Guardianship Orders - information for family and friends carers and Care (and related) proceedings which will give you more information about the order you are hoping to have made in your favour and the proceedings.

I hope this is helpful but if you wish to speak to an adviser you can telephone our free confidential advice line on 0808 801 0366. the advice line is open from 9.30am to 3pm Monday to Friday.

Best wishes

Suzie
