Current law requires the parent or guardian of a child to consent to the interview of the child during a social services investigation unless the parent or guardian is the alleged perpetrator. This bill instead would permit the interview if there was a “documented compelling reason” to believe that seeking consent would place the child in imminent risk of physical harm.
This bill should be monitored.
