ACL 05-13E – Correction to ACL 05-13 – Relative & Nonrelative Extended Family Member (February 15, 2006)

Like Mercedes, the E series is only better. This follows up on an earlier letter (ACL 05-13), informing counties they needed to make a determination and approval of fostercare placements within 30 days. Most of this letter is an unusually legalistic analysis of county determinations regarding assessing relatives prior to foster care placements, and other technical stuff for social workers. What you really want from this letter, as advocates, is the list explaining the 5th degree of relatedness. Great party skill, and useful for welfare applicants. Just remember, Kevin Bacon is the 6th degree. [Download]
