Question

If my child has been removed, do I have any say over where he/she is placed?

Answer

​Upon removal, it is important for you to identify any potential relatives who are fit and willing to take the child.  The DHHS is obligated to seek placement with a relative caregiver before placing the child in foster care.  If there are no suitable relatives, DHHS will choose the foster care placement for your child.
