The Kansas Supreme Court accepted public comment on amendments to Supreme Court Rule 174: Forms Required in a Child in Need of Care Proceeding.
Rule 174 requires certain Kansas Judicial Council forms be used when entering orders in child in need of care cases. Proposed amendments expand the number of forms required to include orders issued in adjudication, disposition, termination of parental rights, and Indian Child Welfare Act proceedings. The amendments would also require certain forms be used when ruling on a child’s placement in a qualified residential treatment program or on requested review of a child’s change of placement.
