§5.20 Set Periodic Review Hearings

If you do not set a .26 hearing after denying reunification services [see Part 2, §5.18[3]], you must set a periodic review hearing for a date not to exceed six months from the disposition hearing, or from the date the child has been in an out-of-home placement if the child was removed. [WIC §§364(a), 366(a)(1), (e), 366.35; CRC 5.695(j), 5.710(a).] You should also set a 12-month hearing to ensure timely notice. For a discussion of periodic review hearings, see Part 3, §6.01 et seq.
