Rule 10

The Department shall file a written report with the court each time the case is before a judge for hearing or report. The report shall be filed in the Clerk's Office at least two days in advance of the scheduled court date and shall contain relevant information regarding the child, the parents, caregivers, the services being offered and provided and the progress towards the permanency goal. The failure of the Department to provide the report in advance of the scheduled court date shall not preclude the judge from proceeding with the hearing.
