May we take our foster children on vacation with us?
Generally, foster parents are encouraged to take their foster children on vacation with them. Foster parents are instructed to contact each child's social worker as soon as possible to discuss any upcoming vacations or travel plans so that the appropriate arrangements can be made well in advance. Additionally, foster parents are advised to contact each child's social worker as soon as possible to inquire as to whether there are any travel restrictions for the child.
Out-of-state travel requires advanced approval from the child's social worker and notification of the Juvenile Court. Travel outside the country requires approval from the child's social worker and the Juvenile Court, which will necessitate additional paperwork and advanced planning.
