Resolution of Disputes with the Division of Law

 

When a dispute arises concerning the best course of action in deciding when and how to litigate a Protective Service or Guardianship matter, every effort is made to resolve the conflict at the local level. The Worker and DAG attempt to work through the disagreement with the CP&P Unit Supervisor, CP&P Casework Supervisor, and the Local Manager.

When further guidance is needed -- regarding decision making authority, please consult the formal document "Protocol Between the Division of Child Protection and Permanency and the Division of Law."
