If Children`s Services stops your child, an application for initial custody of your child and a guardianship order will be made to the Provincial Court of Alberta. Your child remains in foster care until the first hearing between you (parent or legal guardian) and Children`s Services. An arrest warrant allows Children`s Services to take custody of a child if there is reason to believe that the child needs intervention. This order also applies where a child has left the custody of Children`s Services or has been removed from custody without the consent of the Director. You have the right to appeal the court`s decision on your child. Your objection must be made within 30 days of the order or extension. This guide has been designed for parents to prepare them for the conversations they might have with their children when they first use digital devices, grow up and their online activities change and when things go wrong. The guide is divided into three sections that each deal with a different aspect of digital citizenship: respecting people`s feelings, respecting privacy, and respecting online goods. Children`s Services is required to intervene with a child if there are “reasonable and probable reasons to believe that the child needs intervention.” The survival, security or development of the child is threatened.
Examples of this type of situation are as follows: after arrest, the director must return the child within two days or file an application for a supervision order, a temporary guardianship order (“TGO”) or a standing guardianship order (“OGP”). The first hearing may not take place more than ten days after the arrest and the application must be served on the guardian(s) and any child 12 years of age or older at least two days before the date of the first hearing. If initial custody is not granted, your child will return home. Children`s Services will either withdraw its application or amend it to request a supervision order. (See below for more details on the supervision order.) The involvement of child and family services (“the Director”) begins with a report. . . .
