Judicial Case Progression Management in Predicting Length of Stay in Foster Care

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to explore the effects of judicial case progression in predicting time to case closure, using nested modeling to test case and judge level effects. Despite a national focus on streamlining the abuse/neglect court process, there has not been empirical evidence that judicial activities, as compared to activities by the child welfare agency, have a significant impact on the time children spend in foster care. Model results indicated that a significant amount of variance was accounted for at the judge level, and that timing of specific early stage hearings significantly predict time to case closure.
