Summary

Summary

The Family and Juvenile Law Advisory Committee recommends amending three rules and adopting two forms to implement recent statutory changes that authorize placing agencies to petition the court on behalf of nonminor dependents who were ineligible for federal funding as children to terminate the nonminors from juvenile dependency or transitional jurisdiction, and immediately reenter them to allow a new federal eligibility determination to be undertaken so that federal matching funds can be accessed to cover the costs of their cases.

The Family and Juvenile Law Advisory Committee recommends that the Judicial Council, effective September 1, 2022:

1.                     Adopt new forms Petition and Order to Exit and Reenter Jurisdiction--Nonminor Dependent (form JV-469) and Findings and Orders Regarding Exit and Reentry of Jurisdiction--Nonminor Dependent (form JV-471) to allow an agency to petition for and a court to grant an order exiting a nonminor from jurisdiction and allowing them to reenter with a new voluntary placement agreement; and

2.                     Amend California Rules of Court, rules 5.555, 5.570, and 5.906 to clarify that their specific procedural requirements do not apply when reentry is done via this process and make them gender neutral.
