F.C.A. §§355.3, 355.5 Form 3-39 (Juvenile DelinquencyExtension of Placement and Permanency Hearing Order) 12/2015 At a term for the Family Court of the State of New York, held in and for the County of at New York on , . PRESENT Hon. Judge In the Matter of Docket No. A Person Alleged to be a Juvenile Delinquent, Respondent. EXTENSION OF PLACEMENT AND PERMANENCY HEARING ORDER1 DEADLINE: IF THE RESPONDENT REMAINS IN A NON-SECURE LEVEL OF CARE, A PETITION FOR THE NEXT PERMANENCY HEARING MUST BE FILED NOT LATER THAN [SPECIFY]:2 ________________________________ . The above-named Respondent having been adjudicated by this Court to be a juvenile NOTE: Delete "Permanency Hearing" if this is solely an extension of placement order. Utilize General Form GF-35, instead of this form, if this is solely a permanency hearing order. Family Court Act §355.5(2) requires the permanency and extension of placement hearings to be combined. However, a permanency hearing may be required in advance of (and thus separately from) an extension of placement if a finding is made that reasonable efforts are not required (requiring a permanency hearing within 30 days) or if the Respondent was placed on a felony pursuant to F.C.A. §353.3 for 18 months (requiring a permanency hearing annually). Further, if the Respondent is placed in a facility not requiring a permanency hearing, an extension of placement hearing without a permanency hearing may be held. Although all juveniles placed pursuant to Family Court Act §§353.3 and 353.5 are subject to extensions of placement, F.C.A. §355.5 requires a permanency hearing only with respect to juveniles who, during the period of placement, are or may be placed in a non-secure level of care, that is, in facilities with capacities of 25 beds or fewer or are placed for re-placement with authorized agencies for foster or residential care. The petition must be filed at least 60 days prior to the date by which the hearing must be completed. See Uniform Rules of the Family Court, 22 N.Y.C.R.R. §205.17(b). Family Court Act §355.5 requires a permanency hearing regarding juveniles who are placed in non-secure facilities, although all juveniles placed pursuant to Family Court Act §353.3 are subject to extensions of placement.
