Six Month Reviews for When the Child is Residing in the Home of a Parent (WIC 364)
If the child has been placed in the home of a parent, the court will hold a hearing six months from the date of the dispositional hearing. Hopefully, by the six-month review, the parent has addressed any concerns of the court, and the case can be closed.
The court will only keep the case open (for another six months) if the court feels that conditions still exist that potentially place the child at risk or that these conditions will occur when the case is closed.
The risk to the child needs to be proven only by a preponderance of the evidence. A preponderance of the evidence means more likely than not or greater than a 50% chance.
