Can Child protection agency help with custody if other parents has a unfit home?

In general, child protection does not get involved in custody in any way. If a child is removed from an unfit home the noncustodial parent can often have the child placed with them, but are considered a foster parent in the legal sense. There is a federal law that states that the offending parent has 15 out of the next 22 consecutive months to rehabilitate and get custody back of their child. If this does not happen then the state is obligated to file a termination of parental rights against that individual. If the parent completes rehabilitation then the child is returned to their custody and the parents must determine custody through a separate court action. The short answer is that child protection is generally required to attempt to reunify the child with the parent that they were removed from.

Can custodial parent lock children out of home in Indiana?

If the child is a minor, no, they cannot. Expelling a minor for from their parent or legal guardian's home is an act of neglect. Generally when police officers encounter a child who has been kicked out or locked out, they will bring them back to the parent and force the parent to let them back in. If they refuse, they are arrested and charged with neglect. This is true in all states. If a child is committing crimes, the parent can alert the police to the criminal act and see to it that the child is prosecuted or remanded to the state as a ward of the court and removed from their custody based on the same. But a parent does not have authority to decide they want to expel their child from the home just because they want to.

It merely depends on what the parent feels would be a more productive learning environment for their child.
