This is a step-by-step instruction on how to find out if there is a report of child abuse and maltreatment against you in the New York State Central Register (SCR) and whether that information is available to future employers or licenscing agencies that deal with the care of children. If you are applying for a job with children, want to be a foster parent, to adopt, or want custody of your own children, you need to find out your SCR status and clear your name. This guide includes sample letters and memos to help with the process.
