Appealing Your ChildLine Abuse Registry Listing

In Pennsylvania, individuals who have been accused of child abuse or neglect or have been convicted of these crimes can be placed on the state's ChildLine abuse registry. Individuals who are listed on this registry are restricted from certain places and activities that can greatly affect their lives.

If you have been "childlined," you may be prevented from:

  • Asserting your parenting rights
  • Visiting your child at school
  • Applying for and remaining at jobs that involve children
  • Participating in certain activities where children are present
