This paper explores the issues that arise in child protection proceedings involving family violence, where there are concurrent family and/or criminal proceedings. A particular focus is on issues in concurrent proceedings in cases involving intimate partner violence, though there is some discussion of child abuse cases, especially those involving emotional and other child abuse issues arising in the context of high-conflict separations. We discuss and compare the social and legal contexts of these different proceedings, offer analysis of both legal and professional practice concerns that concurrent proceedings create, and conclude by offering suggestions about promising practices to improve processes and outcomes for children in these challenging cases. These cases are inevitably complex and difficult for parents, children, professionals and the justice system.

Child maltreatment is a significant Canadian and global problem that can have serious physical, psychological and emotional impacts lasting long beyond childhood. To prevent and address child maltreatment, the ongoing, systematic collection of data on child abuse and neglect reported to child welfare is essential. The federal, provincial, and territorial governments recognize the importance of surveillance in providing evidence about the contexts, risk factors and types of child maltreatment to inform policy, program, service and awareness interventions. Through their child welfare ministries, the provincial and territorial governments are responsible for assisting children in need of protection; they are also the primary source of administrative data and information related to reported child maltreatment.
