Exercise your right to appeal the decision to remove a foster child from your home.
If the foster care agency plans to remove a foster child from your home, the agency is required to notify you in writing in advance of the move. If you disagree with the move, under certain situations you may appeal the agency decision to the Foster Care Review Board. The appealable situations and the instructions on how to appeal are to be included on the written notice provided by the agency. In those situations, the agency cannot remove the child until the appeal is resolved.
It is important to understand that a foster child can be removed from a home without the right to appeal if the court orders the child removed. In addition, a child can be removed from a home by the agency before an appeal is heard if the agency believes the child is at immediate risk of physical or emotional harm.
