How long does a typical investigation take?

By Allison Williams

The agency has 60 days to complete its investigation. However, it may apply to the local office manager for an extension of that time period upon good cause shown. This is often done in cases where the parents have consented to do psychological evaluations or substance-abuse evaluations with a division contracted provider, because those evaluations have to be requested and paid for by the agency first and then, of course, you have to deal with the availability of the person who's doing the evaluation.
