How long can a child stay on a child protection plan?

A youngster will often require a child protection plan for no more than two years. By that point, the work done with the family generally means that the child is no longer in danger. In a tiny proportion of situations when there is no progress, the court may be required to intervene. The judge could end the case by dismissing it or ordering the child placed with another family.

In most cases, your insurer should be able to provide you with a copy of the court order. If they can't, then you should be able to find out what state jurisdiction is involved by calling the court clerk's office. They should be able to give you this information even if your claim has not been filed yet because these are issues that they need to know about in advance so they can make any necessary arrangements with respect to attorneys, etc.

What’s the time limit for a child protection order?

Some jurisdictions, however, restrict protection orders to 90 days, while others set their durations at three to five years. In general, many child protection orders have a one-year duration, with the option of an extension. The length of time that a protection order can be extended once it has been filed determines how long a victim can remain in danger before the order expires.

A protection order is usually issued by a court after being petitioned by a parent or legal guardian who has reason to believe that the person who has taken out the order has been abused or neglected by another person responsible for the child's welfare. The petitioner must show by a preponderance of the evidence that abuse has occurred or is likely to occur if supervision is reduced. If this burden is met, then the court will issue a protection order. The petitioner can be any person who has custody of the child or residency rights under a visitation agreement. The order will cover only those children that the petitioner has contact with through school or day care facilities or in other private settings such as churches or clubs. It does not apply to children who live with their parents without contact with anyone else.

The victim and his or her family are entitled to a hearing where they can voice their concerns about risk of future harm. They can also ask the court to change the nature or location of the protection order if they feel this is necessary to ensure their safety.

Can a child stay in the UK for seven years?

Until 2008, the Home Office maintained a seven-year policy for children under which a kid who had spent seven years in the UK would normally not be taken unless additional major grounds were considered, such as the child's parent having a serious criminal record. This was changed with the introduction of the Independent Migration Panel system, which means that now even very young children can be deported if their parents are deemed not to be "of benefit to the community".

The government has announced its intention to bring forward the age at which unaccompanied minors become eligible for support from the local authority. From April 2014, any child under 18 will be able to apply for support. Previously, they could only do so between the ages of 16 and 18.

In practice this means that any child who has not reached the age of 18 by 31 December 2013 will automatically receive support until they do. Even if they are no longer living with their parent/s or legal guardian, the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) will continue to send them £58.34 per week until they turn 18. There is also a general presumption in the UK that adults are capable of looking after themselves, so if you are aged under 18 and cannot because you are sick or injured, there is a chance that you might be placed in an orphanage.
