Parental Order Reporting Officer

Once your application is issued, the case is transferred to CAFCASS (Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Services) and a Parental Order reporting officer is appointed.

Their role is as follows :-

1 To identify what information is required for the court to make a decision about your application.

2 To investigate whether the legal criteria is met for a Parental Order to be made.

3 Carry out safeguarding checks on you to establish whether the child is at any risk of harm.

4 Apply the legislation to assess whether there is any reason why a Parental Order should not be made.

5 Report to the court on what needs to be in place to ensure that the child’s best interests are met now and in the future.

The parental order reporting officer will visit you at home where the child lives with you.
