Yes. The department has the right to speak to your kids and spouse if they are concerned that your child might need protection. A Department officer can even talk to your child without you even knowing that they are speaking to your child.
In most cases, yes. The Department has to inform you that they have spoken to your child, however, there are some exceptions including:
- If telling you interferes with a criminal police investigation
- If the Department believes that telling you could place the child in danger
- If the child has asked that they don’t tell you and the Department believes it is in the child’s best interests not to tell you
Once the Department has taken a child into care, it will make a decision about whether that child needs ongoing protection. Sometimes the Department will not take any more action and the child will be returned to their parents.
