Long Term Guardianship to Secretary Order

The magistrate at the Children's Court has made the Secretary to the Department of Health & Human Services (the department) responsible for the child's care as their long term guardian.

This means that most of the parental legal rights and responsibilities as a parent have been transferred for the length of the order to the department. The department is now responsible for looking after the child long term and making important decisions for them.
