Idaho Juvenile Rule 42. Extended Home Visits (C.P.A.)
If the court vests legal custody of the child in the department, then extended home visits must be approved by the court in writing prior to the extended home visit. For purposes of this rule, an extended home visit is any period of unsupervised visitation between the parent and the child that exceeds forty-eight (48) hours duration. The department may terminate an extended home visit without prior court approval when, in the determination of the department, termination of the extended home visit and removal of the child is in the best interest of the child. If the department terminates an extended home visit, the department shall prepare a written statement, setting forth when the extended home visit was terminated and the reason(s) for terminating the extended home visit. The statement shall be filed with the court within forty-eight (48) hours (excluding weekends and holidays) of the termination of the extended home visit, and shall be mailed or otherwise provided to the parties.
