Legal Aid funding for Special Guardianship Orders

There have been recent changes to the law in relation to legal aid for Special Guardianship Orders.

A Special Guardianship Order appoints a person or persons as a child’s Special Guardian and provides the Special Guardian with enhanced parental responsibility for the child.

Legal aid is now available to prospective guardians making an application for a Special Guardianship Order in private law proceedings and to anyone with parental responsibility who is the respondent in an application for a Special Guardianship Order.  

Legal Aid for Special Guardianship Orders is means tested which means that the applicant’s financial circumstances must be taken into account.

If you have any questions or require further information on the above matter, please contact enquiries@tmjlegal.co.uk
