BILL NUMBER:S1752 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the social services law, in relation to the return of a child to the care and custody of his or her parent, parents or guardian PURPOSE: This legislation would require the court to establish a transition plan for the return of a child who has been in the custody of social services and has not been visited by their parent, parents or guardian for a period of six months or more. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section one amends subdivision 7 of § 358-a of the Social Services Law which concerns the return of a dependent child in foster care to their parent, parents or guardian. This bill would require the inclusion of a transition plan in the instrument returning the dependent child when the child has been in the custody of social services and has not been visited by their parent(s) or guardian for a period of six months or more. The transition plan would consist of a series of visits over a period of time determined by the court, on a case by case basis to prepare the child for their return to the parent(s) or guardian.
