What can the CAS do?

The CAS can advise you to do many different things. They might want you to agree to do what they say.

Do not sign any papers with the CAS until you get your lawyer’s advice. It is very important to get your own lawyer even if you want to make an agreement with the CAS.

In some cases, the CAS can take your child away from you. If your child is 16 or 17, they can only do this if the child agrees.
