Bill summary

House committee substitute makes the following changes to the 1st edition.

Amends GS 7B-505 (Placement within nonsecure custody) to remove the requirement for the court to order the department of social services to make diligent efforts to notify relatives and any custodial parents of the juvenile's siblings that the juvenile is in nonsecure custody and of any hearings scheduled pursuant to GS 7B-506, unless the court finds the notification would not be in the juvenile's best interests. Makes clarifying change.

Amends the proposed change to subsection (b) of GS 7B-908 (Post termination of parental rights' placement court review) to require the court to conduct a placement review no later than six months from the date of a termination hearing when one parent's parental rights have been terminated by court order and the other parent's parental rights have been relinquished under GS Chapter 48 (previously did not include one parent's parental rights to have been terminated by court order in addition to the other parent's rights having been relinquished), and a county director or licensed child-placing agency has custody of the juvenile (previously proposed additionally that the county director or licensed agency also has a right to consent to adoption).
