In re L.M., No. A124299

Juvenile court's order denying the minor-plaintiff's motion to require the County Probation Department to pay his father's transportation costs to and from monthly visits is affirmed as plaintiff failed to make a threshold showing that his father was unable to afford the cost of the trips. A juvenile court hearing a delinquency case has the power, under appropriate circumstances, to order a supervising agency to financially assist a parent who lacks the financial means to travel to and from visitation.
