An order by a juvenile court removing a father's children from his home, placing them in the custody of their paternal grandparents, and ordering family reunification services for both father and the children's mother is reversed and remanded as the court had the discretion to order a legal guardianship under section 360(a) and then to order the required assessment report, which would include information on the department's efforts to contact and notify the mother.
