Special Guardianship Allowance

At Higgins Miller we have become aware that an increasing number of people who have special guardianship orders are having difficulties in relation to obtaining financial support for the children that they are caring for.

The law requires a local authority in which the special guardian lives  to consider what payments would have been made via fostering allowance if the child was fostered instead of being made subject of a special guardianship order. The local authority are required to make deductions for child benefit and tax credits which may be claimed.

For more information please see our special guardianship page or contact us to have a chat with one of our solicitors.
