When does a CAS check on a family?

Parents have a legal duty to keep their children safe. A CAS may check on a family if they believe that:

  • parents are violent to each other,
  • parents do things that could harm their children, or
  • a parent does not stop their partner, or other people, including other family members, from doing things that could harm their children.

Here are a few examples of acts that could lead a CAS to check on a family:

  • insulting or yelling at children,
  • hitting or tying up children,
  • punishing children by refusing to give them food,
  • touching children in a sexual way, or
  • leaving children by themselves without someone who is old enough and able to take care of them.
