In re J.D.M.-J., 260 N.C. App. 56 (2018)

Vacated and Remanded
  • Facts: Respondent mother appeals from a permanency planning order that awarded custody of her two children, who had been previously adjudicated neglected, to relatives (maternal aunt and uncle) who reside in Arizona. 
  • Visitation: The visitation order between respondent mother and the child that establishes a weekly visit for a minimum of two hours if the mother moves to Arizona does not comply with G.S. 7B-905.1(c), which requires the court specify the minimum frequency and length of visits and whether the visits shall be supervised. The order does not address the frequency or length of visits if the mother does not move to Arizona, and it does not address supervision at all.
