Child Requiring Assistance Cases

Find out what will happen in court, who may be involved, and what your rights are as a parent, legal guardian, or custodian in a Child Requiring Assistance (CRA) case.

Learn about the CRA case process if you or a representative from your child's or ward's school has filed an Application for a Child Requiring Assistance for your child. If you have questions about the court proceedings that aren't answered here, you can ask your attorney if you're represented by counsel or the clerks in the Clerk-Magistrate's office of the court where your child's case is being heard.
