Name: In re Janee W.
Case #: B182530
Court: CA Court of Appeal
District 2 DCA
Division: 8
Opinion Date: 05/31/2006

Mother appealed an order terminated dependency jurisdiction and placement of the minors with their father. She argued that the court erred because the evidence showed there was a need for continuing jurisdiction by the court and that she did not receive adequate reunification services. The appellate court rejected the arguments and affirmed. The evidence showed that by the 6 and 12 month review hearings, the original situation had changed, and father was taking good care of the minors and providing them with a safe home. Since continued supervision was unnecessary, termination of jurisdiction was proper. Further, the failure to provide mother with adequate services was not error because the minors were placed with their father. The requirement of adequate services is inapplicable where the child is removed from the custody of one parent and placed with another under section 361.2.
