This workshop will focus on review and permanency planning hearing in juvenile abuse, neglect and dependency cases. Participants will learn in depth the applicable statutory framework, including amendments to Article 9 of Chapter 7B enacted during the 2015 legislative session. Participants will apply their statutory knowledge to a fact pattern, and hear from different party perspectives (DSS, GAL, Parent/Respondent) to the juvenile case as it relates to permanency. Topics will include medical consent, reasonable efforts; notification of A/N/D placement with relative or kin; visitation plans; concurrent planning and older youth.
Who should participate?: Judges, DSS attorneys, parent attorneys, and GAL attorney advocates should attend.
