California family lawyerA child’s declining behavior may be grounds for a custody hearing. In California, a parent may lose their custody rights to either the other parent or the state through foster care, if it has been shown that they cannot control their child and keep them from potentially harming themselves through reckless or illegal behavior. Recently, a teenage girl who repeatedly ran away from home, and who also gave birth to two children, was removed from her parents’ custody after an appeal was upheld by the California Supreme Court, according to the American Bar Journal. The decision was based on a California law that allows children to be removed from their parent’s home even if there is no wrongdoing on the parent’s behalf or failure to supervise their child.

Neglect Is Not Relevant, Only Failure to Supervise

Whether or not a parent neglects their supervising responsibilities, their child can be removed from the home if they are found to be at serious risk of harm as a result of failed parental supervision. This means that even if a parent who does all that they can reasonably do to keep their child out of trouble and safe and provide a stable and loving home life, it may still not be enough.
