The State Court Administrative Office is offering a free online toolkit for judges and lawyers who handle child protection cases. Kelly Howard, director of the Child Welfare Services division that created the toolkit called it a comprehensive resource to help judges and attorneys work toward proper permanency of a child. The toolkit is organized by hearings at various stages in child protection proceedings. Each section includes a description of the hearing, applicable court rules and statutes, bench cards, recommended court forms, links to training videos and materials, administrative memorandum, and other resources and publications. The toolkit also includes step-by-step guidelines for judges to follow.
