Abstract

The use of the one family, one judge model of decision making in juvenile dependency and delinquency cases has been recommended as a best practice but has little empirical support. In the current study, we use a pre-post design to examine the effects of implementation of a one family, one judge model on permanency outcomes in juvenile dependency cases. After implementation of the model, juveniles were more likely to be reunited with their families through dismissal of case petitions and were more likely to be reunited in a more timely way (within 12 months of removal) than before the model was implemented. There were no differences in reentry into foster care after case closure when comparing child welfare cases prior to and after implementation of the one family, one judge model, implying that the timelier permanency outcomes did not result in detriments to safety.
