Child Maltreatment Central Registry
The Child Maltreatment Central Registry is maintained by the Arkansas Department of Human Services and includes all individuals against whom a true finding of abuse or neglect has been made. Being on the Registry could negatively affect your employment, professional licensing, and in some cases, your custody and visitation. DHS will notify you by mail if it has made a true finding against you. If you disagree with DHS's true findings, you have a right to appeal the decision within thirty (30) days of being notified.
If your name is already on the Registry, you may be eligible to have it removed. Your eligibility for removal depends on the type of neglect or abuse. Details are available in the Fact Sheet below. If you are applying to have your name removed, make sure you complete and include the DHS Form CFS-328A.
