If your intent is only to adopt, but you are approved to both foster and adopt, will you be required to foster a child who may be reunified with their parents?


The answer is No. Usually It’s not good for you or the child for a social worker to make a placement that is not agreed beforehand.


However if there are some strong reasons for that, in which case your caseworker might ask you to consider accepting placement of a child as their foster parent. Also having an open relationship with your worker will help you to comprehend such requests and consider you to make decisions that are best for your family and for the child.


What are the rules and regulations for adopting children from another state?


The Adoptions across state lines are comes under Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children (ICPC) administration. It’s an agreement between all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands to assure that children placed across state lines will be placed in safe, warm environments with parents who are qualified to care for them.


Usually Interstate adoptions require more processes and paperwork, as well as clear communication between court and child welfare systems across state lines. Fortunately a new electronic data exchange system launched in 2013, referred to as NEICE (National Electronic Interstate Compact Enterprise), is shortening the time it takes to place children across state lines. You can read more about NEICE and about ICPC at the website of the Association of Administrators of the Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children. Everything about procedure along with terms and condition is mentioned over there.
