Our SW explained to us yesterday that, even though state law says that the permanancy hearing MUST be no more than 364 days after the child is made a temp state ward, many judges go against that statute and make their own rules, basically because they don't like being told what to do (most of them who do this were on the bench a long time before the statute was written and still want to do it THEIR way). She said that, although it is SUPPOSED to be a year, not to get our hopes up, or to have any expectations at all, because it could be very different, depending on the judge. Good luck, it must be maddening!
