FORM SUMMARY Name of Form: Form Number: Statutory Reference: Benchbook Reference: Purpose of Form: Order on Waiver of Parental Consent for Abortion JC-1623 §48.375(7), Wisconsin Statutes JV 15 This order is issued by the court following the necessary hearings, and constitutes the decision of the court. The court is required to make a finding whether the juvenile is mature and well-informed enough to make her own decision about an abortion. If the court finds she is not sufficiently mature or well-informed enough, the court must then make a "best interests" determination whether an abortion is in her best interests. Based on the appropriate findings, the court either grants or denies the petition. Who Completes it: The order is signed by the judge. Because of the time requirements inherent in these statutes, it is believed that it would be completed in court at the conclusion of the hearing by the judge checking the appropriate boxes and, if necessary, adding additional findings or conclusions in paragraph 5. Alternatively, the form may be prepared in advance by the petitioner and presented to the court for signing. The original is filed with the Clerk of Circuit Court. If the petition is granted, a certified copy of the order is to be personally served on her counsel, or the clergy-person who filed the petition on her behalf. The counsel or clergy- person is then to "hand-deliver" a certified copy of the court order to the person or agent of the clinic or facility which will perform the abortion. If the petition is denied, a copy is to be personally served on her counsel or the clergy-person. The form includes the language concerning her rights to appeal.
