Permanency planning hearings are then held every 6 months until permanency is achieved. During adjudication, the court determines if the facts in the CINA petition are true. If a child is placed out of the home for at least one year after the initial removal, the court must hold a permanency planning hearing. If the court orders the child be placed for adoption, the court will schedule a termination of parental rights TPR hearing, instead of the next 6-month hearing. If the child is not in shelter care, an adjudication hearing must be held within 60 days from the service of the CINA petition. Healthcare providers can disclose some medical records relating to abuse without the permission of persons in interest under certain circumstances. A parent or guardian of the child has the right to be represented by a lawyer in all of the CINA proceedings. In all stages of a CINA case, when it is possible and in the child's best interest, the law gives priority to placing the child with relatives over non-relatives.
