   and committed to the custody of a state agency on (specify date):
   The child remains under this court's jurisdiction.

2. The child was deemed "eligible for long-term foster care"* on (specify date):

3. It is not in the best interest of the child to be returned to his or her parent's previous country of
   nationality or country of last habitual residence (specify):
   It is in the child's best interest to remain in the United States.

4. The above findings were made by reason of the                           abuse         neglect            abandonment          of the child.

  * Title 8, Code of Federal Regulations § 204.11(a) states: "Eligible for long-term foster care means that a determination
  has been made by the juvenile court that family reunification is no longer a viable option. A child who is eligible
  for long-term foster care will normally be expected to remain in foster care until reaching the age of majority, unless
  the child is adopted or placed in a guardianship situation. For the purposes of establishing and maintaining eligibility
  for classification as a special immigrant juvenile, a child who has been adopted or placed in guardianship situation
  after having been found dependent upon a juvenile court in the United States will continue to be considered eligible
  for long-term foster care."

  Under California law, an order not offering reunification services under Welfare and Institutions Code section
  361.5(b) or 727.2; an order terminating services under Welfare and Institutions Code section 366.21, 366.22,
  or 727.3; or a guardianship order under section 360 means that the child is "eligible for long-term foster care"
  for Special Immigrant Juvenile Status purposes.
