When is a routine check-up not so routine? When it involves an Oscar winner, perhaps.

A judge on Tuesday denied a nanny's request for a restraining order against Halle Berry's baby daddy, Gabriel Aubry, and today the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services paid Berry a visit.

What went down?

Well, that's a matter for the county's confidential case files.

The agency is legally prohibited from commenting on such cases or identifying the people involved, but a rep for the department's public affairs office told E! News that "all necessary steps are taken" when they receive a call about possible child endangerment or abuse.

We hear that the meeting with Berry was standard follow-up procedure.

Berry and Aubry were both in court yesterday for an emergency hearing regarding Aubry's alleged behavior around their daughter's nanny, who claimed that he was verbally aggressive and had "violently pushed her" last week.

In response to a report that police interviewed Berry about the nanny's allegations, the LAPD tells us, "We cannot reveal information about an ongoing investigation in which the victim has confidentiality and the suspect has not been arrested."

The New Year's Eve star kicked off 2011 in court with Aubry, as well, as the two tangled over custody of now-3-year-old Nahla. Berry currently has primary custody of the child and Aubry has visitation rights.
