Section 777 Failure to comply with terms of placement at home

Family Court Act (FCT)

If a person placed in his own home subject to orders of the court leaves home without the court's permission, he may be brought before the court and if, after hearing, the court is satisfied by competent proof that the respondent left home without just cause, the court may revoke the order of placement and proceed to make any order that might have been made at the time the order of placement was made. It may also continue the order of placement and, on due notice and after hearing, enter an order of protection for the duration of the placement.
