(a) In addition to all actions concerning a child in need of care commenced on or
after January 1, 2007, this code also applies to proceedings commenced before January
1, 2007, unless the court finds that application of a particular provision of the
code would substantially interfere with the effective conduct of judicial proceedings
or prejudice the rights of a party or an interested party, in which case the particular
provision of this code does not apply and the previous code applies.
(b) If a right is acquired, extinguished or barred upon the expiration of a prescribed
period that has commenced to run under any other statute before January 1, 2007, that
statute continues to apply to the right, even if it has been repealed or superceded.
