17 Expiry of orders


Except as provided in subsections (2) and (3), a personal order shall expire—


on the date, or at the close of the period, specified in that behalf by the court in the order; or


if no such provision is made in the order,—


on the expiry of a period of 12 months beginning with the date of the order; or


when the effect of the order is spent,—

whichever is the earlier.


Subject to subsection (3), every personal order in which provision is made for the review of the order before a specified date shall expire on that date unless, on a review of the order, the court decides that it should continue beyond that date.


Where, in any case to which subsection (2) applies, an application for a review of the order is made but not determined before the specified date, the order shall remain in force pending the determination of the application.
