53.0.1. Notwithstanding the second paragraph of section 53, the term of a new agreement may not exceed six months if it contains a measure for the voluntary foster care of the child in a foster family or in an institution operating a rehabilitation centre. The new agreement may be renewed once for a period not exceeding six months if, on the date of the renewal, the child has reached 14 years of age.
However, where a new agreement containing a measure for voluntary foster care ends during the school year, the agreement may be extended until the end of the school year if the child is 14 years of age or over and consents to the extension; if the child is under 14 years of age, the new agreement may be extended with the agreement of the child’s parents and of the director.
An institution which operates a rehabilitation centre and which is designated by the director must admit the child.
