In re D.B.Annotate this Case
D.B. was taken into protective custody in 2012 when he was seven years old. Mother N.B. appealed the juvenile court's order pertaining to the continued dependency of D.B. She argued that Welfare and Institutions Code section 364(c) required the juvenile court to terminate jurisdiction because the evidence established continued supervision was unnecessary to protect D.B. from risk of harm. The Orange County Social Services Agency (SSA) agreed with Mother that the juvenile court should have terminated dependency jurisdiction but, unlike Mother, believed D.B.'s father, A.K., should have been granted visitation rights. The Court of Appeal reversed and remanded, finding that substantial evidence did not support the juvenile court's finding that the conditions justifying initial assumption of jurisdiction still existed. To the contrary, SSA took the position and proved those conditions no longer existed.
