CA AB 2282

Title: Family reunification services.
Author: Tina McKinnor

Summary
AB 2282, as introduced, McKinnor. Family reunification services. Existing law establishes the jurisdiction of the juvenile court, which may adjudge children to be dependents of the court under certain circumstances, including when the child suffered or there is a substantial risk that the child will suffer serious physical harm, or a parent fails to provide the child with adequate food, clothing, shelter, or medical treatment. Existing law establishes the grounds for removal of a dependent child from the custody of the child’s parents or guardian, and requires the court to order the social worker to provide designated child welfare services, including family reunification services, as prescribed. Existing law provides that reunification services do not need to be provided to a parent or guardian when the court finds, by clear and convincing evidence, certain circumstances exist, including that the parent or guardian of the child has been convicted of a violent felony, as defined.This bill would instead provide that reunification services do not need to be provided to a parent or guardian when the court finds that the parent or guardian of the child has been convicted of a violent felony against a child. By expanding the scope of individuals requiring reunification services, the bill would impose additional duties on county child welfare departments, thereby imposing a state-mandated local program.The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.

Status
Referred to Coms. on JUD. and HUMAN S.
