2014 Senate Bill 994

Senate Roll Call 709: Passed

To allow the reinstatement of terminated parental rights if a court has determined that adoption or guardianship is no longer the child's “permanency goal." The bill would require that at least three years or more have passed from when parental rights were terminated; and that the child be at least 14 years of age, or the younger sibling of a 14 year old for whom this is sought. Among other things the parents would have to demonstrate whether they are fit and have remedied the grounds that supported termination of parental rights.
