Hot Off the Press - The Child Protection Process (flow chart)

childSupport_hands.png

We’ve revised this poster that describes the child protection process in flow chart form. The step-by-step overview:

  • begins at the investigation and the decision whether protection is required,
  • shows the outcomes of the presentation hearing, and
  • ends with the possible outcomes of the protection hearing.

The revised poster now includes options for what to do if a child is under a continuing custody order.

The revised poster is available online only.

The previous printed edition is legally accurate, but doesn’t include the information about continuing custody orders.
