Set Periodic Review Hearings
do not set a .26 hearing after denying reunification services [see Part 2, §5.18], 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.
