Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Juvenile Court Act of 1987. Provides that a person not appointed guardian or legal custodian or otherwise made a party to a proceeding under the Act, any current or previously appointed foster parent or relative caregiver, or representative of an agency or association interested in the minor has the right to a full evidentiary hearing. Provides that if after an adjudication that a minor is abused or neglected and a notice of a proposed change of placement of the minor is given, a foster parent may file a motion to intervene in the proceeding for the sole purpose of requesting that the placement of the minor be continued with the foster parent. Provides that if placement of a minor has or is being terminated from a foster parent's home when the foster parent had the minor in his or her home for more than 6 months (rather than one year), that foster parent shall have standing and full intervenor status, except where the Department of Children and Family Services or anyone else authorized under the Abused and Neglected Child Reporting Act has removed the minor from the foster parent because of a documented reasonable belief that the circumstances or conditions of the minor are such that continuing in the residence or care of the foster parent will jeopardize the child's health or safety or presents an imminent risk of harm to the minor's life. Effective immediately.
