Abstract

Provides commentary on Chapter 25 of Title 2 of the Texas Family Code. Chapter 25 discusses the Uniform Interstate Compact on Juveniles, which deals with four distinct interstate proceedings. These proceedings include: (1) the out-of-state placement of children on juvenile probation or parole; (2) the return of juveniles who have absconded from probation, parole, or an institution to another state; (3) the return from another state of a juvenile to the state where an act of delinquency is believed to have occurred; and (4) the return of a runaway from another state to the state of residency.
