My intent is to get legislation submitted in RI to expedite the court process once a termination of parental's petition has has been filed for children unable to return home. I work for the state child welfare system and have witnessed first hand the devastation caused by children lingering in foster care. Anybody have data on states that serve as an excellent model for being expeditious in this area due to innovative statutes or court procedures? For example, setting strict timeframes for each phase of the TPR process (initial trial process and then appellate process) and enforcing these timeframes. Information on any states that could be used as a model would be greatly appreciated. Also, I'm trying to connect with people in Massachusetts regarding questions I have as to their court process. Thanks. Matt Gunnip
