1. If a child is found to be neglected, abused or exploited, services must be continued until the child is receiving proper care at home or elsewhere.
Cases must be continually assessed for achievement of the goals and objectives of the case plan. Services must be terminated when:
(a) The caseworker, in conference with his supervisor, determines that the goal of the case has been achieved;
(b) The child is receiving care that meets at least his minimum needs, and the parents have demonstrated their ability to continue to care for the child without the agency's services;
(c) The family requests termination and the case is one of voluntary child welfare services only;
(d) The court disposition is dismissal;
(e) The family can sustain adequate care;
(f) It is determined that the family is unable to benefit from further services and there is no immediate likelihood of an occurrence of abuse or neglect;
(g) The family cannot be located in the state and reasonable efforts to locate the family in another state have failed so that referral procedures cannot be followed;
(h) The applicant for services or the client is deceased and no other children in the family are at risk of abuse or neglect;
(i) An adolescent client marries, reaches 18 years of age or becomes emancipated;
(j) The family moves out of the state and the case is referred to the other state for child welfare services; or
(k) The family refuses services and no legal alternative is available to the agency.
3. At all times, an effort must be made to involve the client in helping to make the decision to terminate services.
Except as otherwise provided in NAC 432B.315
