Post Placement

Once a child is available for placement, you will be required to sign a Placement Agreement with our agency. If the placement is an Interstate placement (ICPC), meaning you reside in a state other than Kentucky, you will be required to remain in the state of Kentucky until the ICPC office in Kentucky and your home state approve the placement of the child. Once the birth parent(s) has signed all the legal documents and the revocation period is expired, our agency will obtain legal custody of the child and will grant you physical care and custody of the child while you await adoption finalization. After you arrive home with the child, you will have a minimum of 2-3 post-placement visits required before a petition for adoption finalization can be requested in court. This process normally takes a minimum of six (6) months for completion.
