Relates to the notification of certain relatives prior to the placement of children.
TITLE OF BILL:
to amend the domestic relations
law, in relation to the notification of certain relatives prior to the
placement of children
SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 - amends section 72 of the domestic relations law, to
include a relative within the third degree of consanguinity, who
resides within the state, as suitable for emergency placement of a
child, if the court makes a finding of extraordinary circumstances.
Section 2 - Effective date.
Too often in our current system, children are placed in foster care
even though there may be relatives whose homes are available for
placement, and where the child can receive a safe and nurturing
environment. This bill will help increase the options for placement
in a manner that allows families to remain intact while reducing
further trauma for children placed in the foster care system.
