What happens after an application is filed?
A licensing worker from the Department arranges to talk with prospective foster parents, usually in the office and in the home. The worker explains Department policies and what is expected of foster parents. The services worker needs to get to know the parents and the members of the family. Medical statements, character references and criminal history are checked.
