Rob Ess tells people that the Child Protection Register is just a `register` and has no legal status. For instance, being on the child protection register does not give social workers an automatic right to remove children from their families.
By putting their signatures to letters and documents, mothers and fathers are deceived into contracting with social workers. These documents then do have legal status.
The general advice must be: Never sign anything under duress. Always seek the best legal advice available before signing anything.
