In re A.C., G040540

In a juvenile dependency proceeding, post-disposition order continuing reunification services for minors' parents is affirmed where: 1) the trial court properly interpreted the relevant dependency statutes in finding parents were entitled to additional reunification services at a particular hearing; 2) Section 361.5 time limits for reunification services start to run when a child is removed from all parental custody at the disposition hearing; 3) the clock does not start running when the child is placed with a noncustodial parent pursuant to section 361.2; and 4) there was also sufficient evidence supporting the court's finding of a substantial probability dependents may be returned to the care of their parents by the 12-month review.
