Comments: IL HB1791 | 2017-2018 | 100th General Assembly

Bill Title: Amends the Juvenile Court Act of 1987. Provides that if, after reviewing the evidence, including evidence provided from the Department of Children and Family Services, the court determines that the minor's current or planned placement is not necessary or appropriate to facilitate achievement of the permanency goal, the court shall put in writing the factual basis supporting this determination, enter specific findings based on the evidence, enter other orders necessary to protect the health, safety, and best interests of the minor and may direct the Department to implement a recommendation by a clinician, Department, or assigned agency. Provides that if the Department places a minor in a placement under an order, the Department may remove the minor from the placement when a change in circumstances necessitates the removal of the minor to protect the minor's health, safety, and best interest. Provides that if the Department determines a removal of the minor is necessary, the Department shall notify the minor's counsel or guardian ad litem of the planned placement change in writing no later than 10 days prior to the implementation of the Department's determination unless remaining in the placement poses an imminent risk of harm to the minor, in which case the Department shall notify the minor's counsel or guardian ad litem of the placement change in writing immediately following the implementation of the Department's determination. Effective immediately.
