Why did the Court order Child Welfare to question my children?

Domestic Violence and Child Abuse

Often when you go to Court for an order of protection, the Court will order an investigation by the Child Welfare Services. The reason for this investigation is to determine the effects of the alleged domestic violence on the children. The Court may suspend all contact between the alleged perpetrator of the violence. If the Court finds that there was abuse the children may become subjects of a child abuse report. Do not avoid contact with the Child Welfare Services as this will have an impact on your child custody and contact with your children.
