A151051

Mother appealed the juvenile court’s decision removing her two children from her custody, awarding sole custody to their previously noncustodial father, and terminating jurisdiction. Finding a lack of evidence in the record concerning the father’s circumstances and the juvenile court’s failure to explain its decision to immediately terminate jurisdiction, the Court of Appeal reversed and remanded the matter for further proceedings. The Court stated that father’s desire to assume custody, the children’s young age, or the fact that father had cared for one of the children on his own for perhaps two months, was not sufficient to show that continued supervision was unnecessary. The juvenile court may not terminate jurisdiction until it analyzed whether ongoing supervision of the child was necessary.
