3 Parenting Orders (s 128)

Where a children's hearing in respect of a child is satisfied that it might be appropriate for a parenting order to be made in respect of a parent of a child, the hearing may require the Principal Reporter to consider whether to apply for such an order.

The children's hearing must specify in the requirement to the Principal Reporter:

  • the parent for whom it might be appropriate for the parenting order to be made
  • the condition in respect of the application either that;
    • the child has engaged in antisocial behaviour and the making of the order is desirable in the interests of preventing the child from engaging in further such behaviour or
    • the child has engaged in criminal conduct and that the making of the order is desirable in the interests of preventing the child from engaging in further such conduct.
    • the welfare condition is that the making of the order is desirable in the interests of improving the welfare of the child.
