Current law allows for the reinstatement of parental rights that
were terminated if certain conditions are met and the child has not been
adopted. The bill expands that to allow for reinstatement of parental
rights in cases where a parent voluntarily relinquished parental rights and
the same conditions are met.
The bill clarifies the court procedures to be followed if a

respondent parent with a pending dependency and neglect case seeks to
voluntarily relinquish parental rights.
