CITATION AND NOTICE OF HEARING Case No.: 18AD000204 SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA COUNTY OF ORANGE 341 The City Drive Orange, Ca 92868 In the matter of the Adoption Petition of: GREGORY C GUEST AND VALERIE K. GUEST Adopting Parents THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA TO: JOSEPH DEHOFF By order of this court you are hereby advised that you may appear before the judge presiding in Department L611 of this Court on JUNE 28, 2019 AT 1:30 P.M. to show cause, if any you have, why JACOB CHARLES DEHOFF should not be declared free from your custody and control for the purpose of freeing JACOB CHARLES DEHOFF for placement for adoption. The following information concerns rights and procedures that relate to this proceeding for the termination of custody and control of said minor as set forth in Family Code Section 7860 et seq.: (1) At the beginning of the proceeding the court will consider whether or not the interests of the minor child require the appointment of counsel. If the court finds that the interest of the minor do require such protection, the court will appoint counsel to represent him/her, whether or not he/she is able to afford counsel. The minor will not be present in court unless he/she requests or the court orders so. (2) If a parent of the minor appears without counsel and is unable to afford counsel, the court must appoint counsel for the parent, unless the parent knowingly and intelligently waives the right to be represented by counsel. The court will not appoint the same counsel to represent both the minor and her parent. (3) The court may appoint either the public defender or private counsel. If private counsel is appointed, he or she will receive a reasonable sum for the compensation and expenses, the amount of which will be determined by the court. That amount must be paid by the real parties in interest, but not by the minor, in such proportions as the court believes to be just. If, however, the court finds that any of the real parties in interest cannot afford counsel, the amount will be paid by the county. (4) The court may continued the proceeding for not more than thirty(30) days as necessary to appoint counsel to become acquainted with the case. Dated: 2/22/2019 David H.
