What is a Dispositional Hearing?

What is a Dispositional Hearing?

Once the fact-finding hearing is over, the judge will decide if you have abused or neglected your child, and why they have decided that outcome. If the judge finds you guilty of doing so, another hearing called the “dispositional hearing” will occur. The dispositional hearing will most likely occur immediately after the fact-finding hearing. Here, the judge will give you a list of steps you must complete, like participation in counseling and other betterment programs. While these steps are being completed, the judge will decide if your child will live with you at home or not. After the dispositional hearing, you have 45 days to file an appeal of the results found in the fact-finding hearing.
