C.A. v. Super. Ct.
C.A. was three years old when he was removed from the custody of petitioner, C.A. (mother). He was declared a dependent child of the court due to motherâ€™s incarceration and concerns about motherâ€™s mental health and substance abuse. At the contested 12-month review hearing, the juvenile court accepted the recommendation of the Santa Clara County Department of Family and Childrenâ€™s Services (Department) to terminate reunification services (Welf. & Inst. Code, Â§ 366.22, subd. (a)) and set a selection and implementation hearing pursuant to section 366.26. Mother petitions for a writ of mandate directing the juvenile court to vacate that order. Mother argues that Department did not offer reasonable reunification services. Mother also faults Department for failing to provide an opportunity for C.A. to visit with his half sibling, I.R. We reject the arguments and deny the petition.
