Temporary Care Agreements

Assistance service agreements can last up to six months. Depending on the situation, you may be able to renew a support service contract. If you use Custody X Change to create your temporary contract, you can easily change the program to reflect any changes made during the custody process. If your child is between the age of 12 and 15, he or she must also accept the fixed-term care contract. If they do not agree and CAS is always worried about them, CAS can take them from home and start legal proceedings. If you are unable to care for your child for a short period of time, you can talk to Oranga Tamariki and agree with them that your child should be cared for for several weeks. If you follow the temporary plan, you can assess whether each parent is able to follow the plan, whether the plan works for your child, and whether changes need to be made before the agreement is finalized. Note: A temporary or extended custody agreement is usually concluded only if there is a reasonable prospect that the child may then return to his or her parents. There are other situations that, in addition to divorce, may justify a temporary coverage agreement. Temporary custody may be granted to the other parent or to a third party in case of outstanding circumstances, such as. B: If your child is 16 or 17, she is the only one who decides if she wants to take care of her. If they don`t agree, CAS can`t take them from home.

But CAS may ask the court to order her to be placed in the custody of the CAS without their consent. But there is a maximum time that a child may be in temporary custody of the CAS through an arrangement or judicial order. This is because these care agreements could be one of the things that were decided at a family group conference (see below) after a report on damage or neglect – or the family/Wh`nau and Oranga Tamariki could conclude one of these agreements without going through the family group conference process. If, during the implementation of the plan, it seems that the results are not in the course, you come back to the FGC to check if the Mokopuna should stay longer in care. An extended care contract (s140) can only be concluded by appointment at a family group conference (GSF). Agreements are voluntary; its aim is to offer a temporary, well-planned and carefully monitored strategy to meet the needs of Mokopuna. It is not appropriate to apply a fixed-term care contract in the event of serious care or protection problems or if Mokopuna is not expected to return home at the end of the agreement. This type of custody regime is temporary and custody of the child is usually returned to the parent as soon as circumstances return to normal. An extended care contract provides an assisting mechanism where: Since there is a likelihood that your initial temporary custody system will become permanent, you should do everything in your power to ensure that your plan for your child is correct from the beginning of your custody case. Parents who wish to transfer temporary custody to someone else can go to court to obtain a temporary custody warrant. This ensures that the party who cares for his child in absentia has the legal opportunity to receive medical care for the child and to manage the child`s school.

If a family or family is going through a difficult time and needs help caring for their children, one option is to agree with Oranga Tamariki or any other support service to care for the child for a limited time, without the family court getting involved. The Oranga Tamariki Law expressly authorizes this and sets up some rules around the process. This document contains the provisions available when a mocopy is handled by a voluntary agreement with the parents, legal guardians or ordinary persons who care for the Mokopuna in accordance with the provisions of the Oranga Tamariki Act 1989.
