The State Child Rights Protection and Adoption Service under the Ministry of Social Security and Labour (hereinafter referred to as ‘the Service’) shall respond to all incoming reports of children who may be victims of domestic violence, treating them as possible violations of the child’s rights.

In cases involving possible violence against a child, endangerment to their safety, health or life, or the child’s presence in an unsafe environment, the investigation must commence within six hours. In the case of a report received from the police, the investigation must begin within one hour of receipt of the report. This means conducting an interview with the child, ensuring unrestricted communication, and engaging with the child’s legal representatives in accordance with the law.
The Minister of Social Security and Social Protection of the Republic of Lithuania bears the responsibility for assessing the child’s situation. The approved ‘Description of the Procedure for the Assessment of the Child’s Situation’ outlined in Order No A1-803 of the Minister of Social Security and Labour dated 30 December 2019 also applies. 
Upon completion of the actions specified in Article 36 as outlined above, the Service or its authorised local department shall conduct an assessment of the child’s circumstances, in compliance with Order No A1-803. If necessary, the Service shall initiate the provision of assistance to the child and/or family (including applying for the appointment of a case manager) and implement additional measures to ensure the child’s safety.
