DIGEST OF SB 164 (Updated April 25, 2013 2:47 pm - DI 107)


Child in need of services petitions. Allows a prosecuting attorney to request a juvenile court to authorize the filing of a petition alleging that a child is a child in need of services, and requires a prosecuting attorney to represent the interests of the state in the child in need of services proceeding, unless the prosecuting attorney and the department of child services agree that the department shall represent the interests of the state in that proceeding. Provides that if a prosecuting attorney is representing the interests of the state at a subsequent proceeding after a CHINS petition is filed, all deadlines and procedures concerning CHINS apply to the prosecuting attorney to the same extent as they apply to the department.(The introduced version of this bill was prepared by the department of child services interim study committee.)
