The juvenile court properly removed minor from mother in order to place with previously noncustodial father. The minor was removed from mother’s custody, and placed with father, the previously non-custodial parent. Reunification services were ordered for mother. On appeal, mother argued that removal was inappropriate because there was a reasonable alternative to removal which was not considered, i.e., placement with father without a removal order. The appellate court rejected the argument and affirmed the orders. There was ample evidence that there would be a substantial danger to the minor if returned to mother’s custody. A court cannot award custody to a noncustodial parent without first removing the child from the custodial parent.
