AN ACT CONCERNING GUARDIANSHIP APPOINTMENTS FOR INDIVIDUALS SEEKING SPECIAL IMMIGRANT JUVENILE STATUS.


OFA Fiscal Note

State Impact: None

Municipal Impact: None

Explanation

The bill expands the definition of “minor” in specified circumstances to allow certain individuals to seek special immigrant juvenile status with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, which allows the child to legally remain in the United States. As this change would occur as a part of an existing probate court hearing, there is no additional cost to the Probate Court.
