On February 22, 2023, an order in the matter of the formation of a committee to examine the minor guardianship case type was filed in the Eighth Judicial District Court. See Administrative Order 23-02.
Administrative Order 23-02 order cites the NRS 3.025, EJDR 1.30(b), EDCR 1.30(b)(16), and notes the large number of adult and minor guardianship cases pending. Also, the order mentions an issue that “concern has been raised by our community partners in Southern Nevada suggesting that the minors who are subject to this case type, and their families, struggle with the process, due to 1) procedural hurdles; 2) lack of resources and information, and 3) “’hidden foster care.’”
Administrative Order 23-02 establishes a committee, selects the chair of the committee, and lists representatives to be considered voting members as part of the committee. The initial meeting of the committee will be on March 17, 2023.
