0 out Of 5 Stars
An Emergency Protection Order (EPO) is an Order made by a Court in an emergency situation when a child or young person is thought to be in immediate danger. An EPO gives the Health and Social Care Trust Parental Responsibility for a child for an initial maximum of eight days, which can be extended by the court if needed.
