Reporting is made to the Department of Youth Protection: this is certainly one of the most stressful legal situations for a family. The DYP has powerful means of ensuring children’s safety.
A youth protection lawyer can first of all answer your questions about the procedure. Voluntary measures may be taken in agreement with the parents, but protection measures may also be applied by the Court.
If you do not believe the DYP’s measures are justified or go beyond the limits, your lawyer can object to them in court or propose alternative measures.
