New Jersey Division of Child Protection and Permanency v. K.N. and K.E. (A-10/11-14

New Jersey Division of Child Protection and Permanency
          v. K.N. and K.E. (A-10/11-14; 074161)
          The Family Part had the authority to determine that
          the child’s best interests were served by his
          continued placement with a relative not licensed as a
resource family parent under the Act.  The Family Part
          did not have the authority to compel the Division to
          pay financial assistance under the Act to a relative
          not licensed as a resource family parent. Accordingly,
          the Appellate Division’s judgment is affirmed as to
          those determinations.  Because the Division returned
          Tommy to the care and custody of his mother, the
          Appellate Division’s remand to the Family Part is
          dismissed as moot.
