Dec. 16, 2022 – Amber G. v. Superior Court (4th Dist., Div. 3, G061684)

The Court of Appeal grants the minor and prospective adoptive parent/de facto parent’s petition for extraordinary writ from the juvenile court’s orders removing the minor from the adoptive parent’s home and placing the child with out-of-state relatives she has never met. The Court of Appeal finds the juvenile court erred when it focused on the reasons for the delay in placing the child with her relatives and neglected to sufficiently consider the requirements of WIC 366.26(n).
