Pennsylvania law provides the right to appeal an indicated report of child abuse by petitioning for expungement with the Department of Public Welfare's Bureau of Hearings and Appeals. The Childline Abuse Registry Notice that you may have received is required to contain certain information regarding legal rights. The appeal is initially heard before an Administrative Law Judge and review may then be requested before the Commonwealth Court. You should contact an attorney immediately in order to determine the time for a possible appeal.
