If the court decides to schedule a fact-finding hearing, the person who filed the CRA application will be responsible for presenting enough evidence for the judge to find beyond a reasonable doubt that the child requires assistance. At the end of the fact-finding hearing, the judge will either: 

  • Dismiss the case if the evidence presented doesn’t prove beyond a reasonable doubt that your child requires assistance.
  • Find that your child requires assistance and schedule a conference and a disposition hearing. If possible, the conference and disposition hearing will be scheduled on the same day.
