Permanency Hearing

Oliver has a permanency hearing scheduled for today at 1 p.m., PST. Prayers for the judge's wisdom greatly appreciated.






Permanency hearing means:
(1) The hearing required by section 475(5)(C) of the Act to
determine the permanency plan for a child in foster care. Within this
context, the court (including a Tribal court) or administrative body
determines whether and, if applicable, when the child will be:

(i) Returned to the parent;

(ii) Placed for adoption, with the State filing a petition for
termination of parental rights;

(iii) Referred for legal guardianship;

(iv) Placed permanently with a fit and willing relative; or

(v) Placed in another planned permanent living arrangement, but only
in cases where the State agency has documented to the State court a
compelling reason for determining that it would not be in the best
interests of the child to follow one of the four specified options
above.

I read this too late, but I hope it went well. Could this mean the end of the parental visitations?
