Description of Resource

This section of the "A Social Worker's Toolkit for Working with Immigrant Families" illustrates how and when immigration issues may arise during the chronology of a child welfare case. The flowchart begins at the point of a child abuse report and continues through assessment, diversion or intervention, removal, dependency issues and permanency planning. At each stage of the flowchart, potential immigration issues are noted and explored. (Description from source)
