Early childhood educators are often called upon to review and interpret Court Orders. This workshop will examine the most common forms of Custody Orders and their impact upon the early childhood setting. We will review the basic tenants of “Shared Custody”/ “Joint Custody” and “Temporary Custody Orders’ and other typical custodial arrangements. In addition, we will focus on Protection from Abuse Orders, Restraining Orders and Foster Parent Placement Documents. Informal agreements, authorizations, subpoenas, and sample Court Orders will be provided for review and discussion.
