Obligatory and non-obligatory family counselling

Obligatory and non-obligatory family counselling

(full text available only in Dutch)

Summary

The juvenile-court judge is entitled to place a minor under the supervision of the Youth Care Agency if the development of the minor in question is under threat and other methods of relieving this threat have failed or are expected to fail. Obliging the parents to accept this supervision is seen as a last resort. A new legislative proposal will ensure that supervision orders will not be imposed if the parents are willing to cooperate with the family councellors.
