Prior court authorization must be obtained before a psychotropic medication not currently authorized is given to a child except in an emergency situation. An emergency situation occurs when a physician finds that the child requires psychotropic medication because of a mental condition and the purpose of the medication is to protect the life of the child or others, prevent serious harm to the child or others, or treat current or imminent substantial suffering and it is impractical to obtain prior authorization from the court. Court authorization must be sought as soon as practical but never more than two court days after the emergency administration of the psychotropic medication. 2 JV-221, Proof of Notice: Application Regarding Psychotropic Medication 1 2 This form provides verification of the notice required by rule 5.640 of the California Rules of Court. This form must be completed and signed by the person or persons responsible for providing notice as required by local court rules or local practice protocols.

If one agency does all the required noticing, only one signature is required on page 3 of the form. The person or persons responsible for providing notice as required by local court rules or local practice protocols is encouraged to use the most expeditious manner of service possible to ensure timely notice. Notice may be given by electronic service only with the prior authorization of the person to be served and in compliance with the requirements of section 1010.6 of the Code of Civil Procedure. 3 4 JV-222, Opposition to Application Regarding Psychotropic Medication 1 This form must be used when the parent or guardian, the attorney of record for a parent or guardian, the child, the child's attorney, the child's CAPTA guardian ad litem, or the Indian child's tribe does not agree that the child should take the recommended psychotropic medication.
