If your child is not cared for at home, you will be encouraged to read the guide who goes to court and works to reunite families. This guide has been developed by CYPS and community partners and provides useful information on care and protection processes. If you don`t have a copy of this manual yet, ask your case employee to have one. A. Even if your child is no longer in your care, you are entitled to regular information about their progress and well-being. If your child is in school, you can ask your manager to receive copies of their school reports, letters from their child and regular photos, including school photos. CYPS and ACT Together encourage you to send regular letters, birthday cards and gifts and always participate in a contact intended to maintain this important relationship despite the difficult circumstances. “No other person who has a daily duty of care for the child or youth can assume responsibility in a way that would be inconsistent with the relief of the burden on the Director General.” Nurses are professionally trained to care for children who cannot live with their families. They are also continuously supported by ACT Together. Among the host agencies involved in ACT Together: If the contact takes place, it is important that you take advantage of this time with your child to let him know that you love him and take care of them, and especially to have fun with them. If you make sure that your child returns to your care, you should: your child`s care plan covers all aspects of your child`s care and will make it clear that if an order gives you (or anyone else) joint parental responsibility with the General Manager (and therefore THE CYPS), you and CYPS, you can take that responsibility and make decisions about your child`s care.
However, the Children and Young People Act 2008 allows the Director General to have the final say in most decisions. The law states that the ACT Childrens Court and your child`s child`s care team will take into account your willingness to work together and your behaviour in future decisions. The goal is for your contact with your child to increase if your situation changes for the better. However, if you do not follow the instructions of the court`s decision, z.B. if you do not return your child on the agreed date or if you do not allow your child to be in contact with someone he or she should not have, you will violate the order and you may be charged. Violation of the court order can also have a significant influence on whether or not your child can be returned to your custody.
