Can my child live with someone else?

Yes.  However:

  • you must stay in contact with the child and caregiver,
  • assure the caregiver is safe and reliable,
  • assure you are available to approve health care/school needs or assign legal authority to the caregiver,
  • continue to provide financial support, and
  • continue to provide health insurance.  

You must also:

  • notify any agency you receive money from to support this child (example: financial unit, child support or social security office) of this arrangement.
