12-OCFS-INF-06: Termination of Parental Rights’ Effect on Continuing Contact of Birth Parent and Child
The purpose of this Informational Letter (INF) is to provide information to local departments of social services (LDSS) and voluntary authorized agencies regarding a recent NYS Court of Appeals decision in the Matter of Hailey ZZ (official citation not yet available). The Court of Appeals ruled that the family court may not order continuing contact between a parent and a child once the parent’s rights have been involuntarily terminated pursuant to Social Services Law (SSL) §384-b.
