A trial court asked to make special immigrant juvenile findings needs to first determine if the immigrant child was either declared a dependent of the court or placed under the custody of a court-appointed guardian, then determine whether immigrant child cannot reunify with one or both parents because of abuse, neglect, abandonment, or a similar basis pursuant to California law, and lastly, decide whether it is not in the best interests of the child to be returned to her previous country; California superior courts must issue their findings on a Judicial Council form created for this purpose.
