In re A.O., B218741

Juvenile court's order on a supplemental petition terminating a home of parent order and removing father's daughter from his care after his arrest and incarceration is affirmed where: 1) substantial evidence supports the juvenile court's finding that the previous home of parent order was no longer effective to protect the daughter; and 2) a basis to avoid the assertion of dependency court jurisdiction over a child under section 300(g) -- an incarcerated parent's making an appropriate arrangement for the care of the child by a relative or friend -- is inapplicable to a supplemental petition under section 387 because section 300(g) deals with the initial imposition of dependency court jurisdiction over a child, which is not at issue on a section 387 petition to terminate a home of parent order.
