Permanency Hearing or Permanency Plan Review

This is a hearing held about every six months, where the Family Court reviews the agency’s progress in planning for you. You should talk with your lawyer in advance about coming to court for these hearings, so that you can have the most input into the plans that will be presented to the judge regarding your future. Remember that when your plan is presented in court, you and your lawyer can agree with the plan or present a different plan to the judge.
