Legal Authority/Introduction

LEGAL AUTHORITY:

The court may recommend a specific placement of a child committed to the Cabinet, but cannot order the Cabinet to place a child in a particular placement. If the court orders a particular placement at any time a child is in the custody of the Cabinet, the child may not be eligible for title IV-E benefits. 

Procedure

The SSW:

  1. Follows SOP 11.1 Preparation for Court when out of home placement of a child is considered;
  2. Consults with the FSOS and immediately notifies the OLS regional attorney if issues arise, such as the court ordering a specific placement.
