Rule Rule 413-110-0230
Permanency Plan Review

DHS shall review the permanency plan for each child in its legal custody after the 6 month review conducted under ORS 419A.106 (Review of cases generally) or any hearing conducted in lieu of such review; but prior to the permanency hearing required by ASFA to determine the appropriateness of the permanency plan. If the permanency hearing is scheduled before the above 6 month review, DHS shall review the permanency plan prior to the permanency hearing even if the review has not occurred. If the child cannot be safely placed with a parent, in determining if adoption is the appropriate concurrent permanent plan:


The local designated review body shall consider whether the plan is in the best interest of the child and whether there is a potential adoptive resource for the child or a resource can be located; and


The Legal Assistance Specialist shall provide consultation to the local staff on whether the plan is consistent with statewide practice and whether the plan complies with the requirements of the DHS Adoption Program.
