Is there a web site where i can download these forms. our Granddaughters parents want us to look after our Grand Daughter on a permanent basis, we need them to fill out a guardianship form to enable us to organise a new school, Doctors etc. as they live 300 miles away. Thanks in advance.
google something like, how do I apply for SGO and various links will appear. I think if you're applying for the SGO you have to start the process not your grandchild's parents. You'll find a link to the Family Rights Group that spells out the SGO process and legal background. Meanwhile, I suggest you get a letter/ written permission, from your grandchild's parents. It should state clearly that they give permission for you to seek medical treatment, identify a school etc. You should also be given the Child Benefit book by the parents along with written permission for that to be paid directly to you. Its not as simple as downloading a form for them to sign.
