Bavaria: Family courts: Fewer measures in the event of a child endangerment

Fürth (dpa / lby) - Last year, family courts in Bavaria took action in 2706 cases against a threat to the well-being of the child. Compared to the same period last year, the number of judicial measures fell again, this time by twelve percent, as the State Statistical Office announced on Thursday in Fürth. Boys and girls were equally affected. In 520 cases, full custody was transferred either to the youth welfare office or to a third party. In 1090 cases, the courts opted for a partial transfer of custody.

Family courts must take action if, for example, children are physically, mentally or emotionally endangered and the parents either cannot or do not want to do anything about it. Youth welfare offices always call family courts when the endangerment of the child's well-being can only be averted by a court decision, according to the state office.

The court can, for example, oblige parents to take advantage of public assistance such as child and youth welfare services and health care or to ensure that compulsory schooling is observed. It can also prohibit parents from contacting the child.
