Godsoe. Michigan State Law Review, Vol. 2013, p. 1113. " In essence, the permanency framework tries to fit complex relationships and families into neat and tidy boxes. This approach is neither effective nor desirable, denying many children meaningful relationships with caring adults, and devaluing certain kinds of families."

Fershee, KH. Georgia State University Law Review, Vol. 30, No. 3, 2014. "Congress, in an attempt to reduce the amount of time children spend in foster care, included provisions in ASFA that require states to expedite termination of parental rights to such a speed that states have been engaging in, for many years, systematic deprivation of the parents’ procedural and substantive due process rights."

Cooper, TA. Marquette Law Review, Vol. 97, 2013. "In disproportionately high numbers, Native American and African American children find themselves in the American foster care system. Empirical data establish that these children are removed from their families at greater rates than other races and stay in foster care longer, where they are often abused, neglected, and then severed from their families forever"

Gupta-Kagan. U.C. Davis J. of Juv. L. & Pol'y __ (2015 Forthcoming) "Research has demonstrated that such options are as lasting as adoption, and can help more children leave foster care to legally permanent caretakers. This continuum promises to empower families — especially children and their new permanent caregivers — to determine the best legal status for their particular situation. It also challenges a reliance on terminations of parental rights as the default tool to achieve permanency."

Provencher, Gupta-Kagan & Eschelbach Hansen. Social Work & Social Sciences Review 17(2), 2014 Forthcoming. "Each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia sets its own standard of proof. We measure the influence of the standards of proof using survey data. We find that a higher standard of proof — one requiring the government to present clear and convincing evidence of abuse or neglect rather than only requiring a preponderance of the evidence of abuse or neglect — decreases the probability that the judge rules in favor of CPS."

Noonan and Miller. Hastings Law Journal, Forthcoming. 2014. "In light of increasing national attention on high rates of prescribing psychotropic medication for children in foster care and related new federal requirements for state reporting to the federal government, we analyzed 16 states’ child welfare agencies’ laws, policies and regulations."

Katz, S. Michigan State Law Review, Vol. 1079, No. 4, 2013. "This Article focuses on the law surrounding cases where legal guardianship has been granted to a relative or other caregiver after a child has spent time in foster care. In these cases, the child is not reunified with a parent, but is also not adopted (and parental rights are not terminated)."

Urs, T. New York University Review of Law & Social Change, Vol. 38, No. 2, p. 305, 2014 "Every year, state officials conduct millions of interviews with children in the context of child welfare investigations. These investigations have serious consequences for families — for instance, they can lead to the placement of a child in foster care or the termination of parental rights."

Dyer, C. BMJ. 2003 Aug 9; 327(7410): 305. "Children can sue the healthcare trusts and local authorities that wrongly conclude that they have been the victims of abuse, the Court of Appeal for England and Wales ruled last week, in a judgment with far reaching consequences. . . But the court ruled that it would be against public policy for parents to be able to sue for the harm they suffered as a result of their child's mistaken diagnosis."
