SECTION 1015-A
Court-ordered services
Family Court Act (FCT) CHAPTER 686, ARTICLE 10, PART 1
§ 1015-a. Court-ordered services. In any proceeding under this
article, the court may order a social services official to provide or
arrange for the provision of services or assistance to the child and his
or her family to facilitate the protection of the child, the
rehabilitation of the family and, as appropriate, the discharge of the
child from foster care. Such order shall not include the provision of
any service or assistance to the child and his or her family which is
not authorized or required to be made available pursuant to the
comprehensive annual services program plan then in effect. In any order
issued pursuant to this section the court may require a social services
official to make periodic progress reports to the court on the
implementation of such order. Nothing in such order shall preclude any
party from exercising its rights under this article or any other
provision of law relating to the return of the care and custody of the
child by a social services official to the parent, parents or guardian.
Violation of such order shall be subject to punishment pursuant to
section seven hundred fifty-three of the judiciary law.
