What is a family guidance order

A family guidance order (FGO) is a court order made under the Children and Young Persons Act that parents or guardians can apply for if they need help guiding their child who is under 16 years of age. FGO applications are heard in the Youth Courts.

It replaces the former Beyond Parental Control (BPC) orders to reflect the shift in focus from solely the behaviour of the child to the role of the family.
