In re:  Title 63, South Carolina Children’s Code


Pursuant to Act. No. 361, 2008 S.C. Acts 3623, the Legislature transferred the South Carolina Children’s Code from S.C. Code Ann. § 20-7-10 et. seq. to the new Title 63.  There are several references to the former sections in previous Orders and Administrative Orders, which, based on the amendments, are now incorrect.

Therefore, pursuant to Article V, § 4, of the South Carolina Constitution, any references to S.C. Code Ann. § 20-7-10 et. seq. in previous Orders and Administration Orders shall be deemed references to S.C. Code Ann. Sections 63-1-10 et seq.

This order is effective immediately.
