"What would the caseworker do if they think that the child is not in immediate danger, but they would be unsafe if they continued to live in that house?"
The caseworker could apply for an Apprehended Violence Order (AVO). The advantages of an AVO in this case is that the alleged abuser can be ordered to leave the house, rather than requiring the child to leave. PROPAGANDA! In most cases DoCS remove the children altogether - citing the mother has not displayed protective behaviours - and routinely gives the children to the abuser or the abusers family.
If the caseworker doesn't think an AVO would be enough to protect the child or young person, they may consider making a Care Application to the Children’s Court for an order that the child live somewhere else until it's safe again. PROPAGANDA again. Their first resort is to make a care application to the children's court - and this is after they have removed the children.
