The CPS worker shall interview nonvictim children as collaterals if it is determined that they may have information which would help in determining the finding in the valid complaint. Such contact should be made with prior consent of the nonvictim child's parent, guardian or agency holding custody. If the situation warrants contact with the nonvictim child prior to such consent being obtained, the parent, guardian or agency holding custody should be informed as soon as possible after the interview takes place.
