When a dispute over child welfare ends up in court, it’s not uncommon for a Section 47 report to be issued. These reports offer a much more in-depth look at a family situation than a standard Section 20 report. Most often, a judge ends up requesting a Section 47 report in order to obtain more information about a family situation or a child’s well-being. They are typically requested when there is any suspicion that a child may be in danger or experiencing harm at home. Section 47 Reports – Caroline Goldsmith Psychologist
A Section 47 report typically includes an extensive process of collecting relevant information, including:
Background and history
A parental assessment and evaluation
A child assessment and evaluation
One of the biggest benefits of having a Section 47 report according to Caroline Goldsmith Psychologist, is that it tends to leave no doubt as to what should be done for the best interest of a child.
Difference between a Section 20 and a section 47 Report
Section 20 reports are usually shorter versions of what’s going on in a family environment. However although this can be said to offer a snapshot of all the issues, it doesn’t always offer a full or accurate depiction of the true environment that could/should be used in a court. A Section 47 report really dives deeper into the child’s best living environment surrounding issues and best interests. As a result, a more accurate portrayal will be made and it’s more likely the child will be placed in the home or placement that is best for them.
