There is no particular format that must be followed by a contract. In general, it will contain certain concepts, either explicit or implicit, that will form the basis of the agreement. These conditions may include contractual clauses or contractual guarantees. Another important difference between an act and an agreement is that an act is binding on a party if it has been signed, sealed and delivered, even if the other parties have not yet signed the deed. The agreement and any evidence whether or not a parent has maintained it will potentially be important information in any family court proceeding concerning children. It can be abandoned by a social worker who says that children should be abducted because parents cannot rely on it, because they have already broken their promises, or to show parents that they have said what they are worried about and what needs to change, the support they have been offering and the clear instructions they have given. It can be abandoned by a parent who says they have done everything they asked for and that they should keep (or recover) their children. It can be provided by a parent who says that the local authority has not offered enough support or that they do not have enough clear what they are doing. It is also a good assessment of what, at one point, was really worrying social services – and therefore what was not enough concern to include them. These documents, in addition to proving what has actually happened since then, can be very useful for the courts trying to determine whether the parents have been shot fairly. How to avoid confusion between an act and a hyponym agreement (each of the following is a kind of “written agreement”): TIP: If it is not possible to have a written contract, make sure you have other documents such as emails, quotes or notes on your discussions to help you identify what has been agreed. The conclusion of an act or agreement depends on the circumstances and the parties involved and you should seek legal advice before making a decision. Sometimes, social services will ask parents to sign an agreement, even if the children are in care to provide them with a framework for the work to be done and the changes to be made during an assessment period (going to appointments at the Addiction Agency, maintaining conditions at home, reporting relapses, etc.).
