In the absence of one of the factors described in Subsection (1), a court may not remove a child from the parent's or guardian's custody on the basis of:
(a) educational neglect, truancy, or failure to comply with a court order to attend school;
(b) mental illness or poverty of the parent or guardian; or
(c) disability of the parent or guardian, as defined in Section 57-21-2.
Lack of adequate housing and homelessness, however, are often entangled with the reasons for removal.
