Supplementary notes

- Ex lege custody: decision reached by the appropriate authority by which the minor in question is declared in abandonment. By this decision, the child is then given custody through the ministry of Law. In practice, this decision implies the child's custody.
- Guardianship: decision reached by the appropriate authority by which the state takes responsibility of the child's custody. Unlike ex lege custody, declaration of abandonment is not required by the appropriate authority.
- Under consideration prior to the protective measure: files in the process of analysis prior to passing a protective decision. Those cases that have already been allocated a protective decision are not included under this section, notwithstanding that the case is being under consideration for amendments or cessation.
