Consolidation

1.  What does consolidation under 419B.806(1) mean?

(a)  All dependency and delinquency proceedings for one child are merged into one hybrid case, in both procedure and substance, with a single judge to resolve the delinquency case(s) in the context of the child's issues regarding abuse and neglect

(b)  Dependency and certain actions (filiation, guardianship, domestic relations cases) are merged into a hybrid case, in both procedure and substance, to use resources efficiently and to provide convenience to litigants

(c)  The same judge hears dependency and certain actions (filiation, guardianship, domestic relations cases) to prevent the entry of conflicting orders
