How do you all factor in adoption income during screening? Anyone run into this before? --174.240.xxx.xxx

My daughter and son in law pursued adoption, they didnít complete the process. Multiple times, they were awaiting the child to be brought to their home only to receive last minute notice that the birth mother changed her mind or some gov agency needed more.

My take is that guv never leaves the family alone and will likely reneg on their deals. I suspect the money is used as the stick to get adoptive parents to raise woke kids. --149.76.xxx.x

Besides that, does it count as income? I wouldnít assume itís garnishable. --24.152.xxx.xx

adoption or foster parents? i would think adoption would cost a family but foster parents get a check, i think it would be garnishable but not sure,i think it would be just another sourse of income like a job --71.217.xx.xxx

I would view it the same as SSI. --68.1.xxx.xx

Adoption subsidies are not garnishable. Generally, they are to cover some special need (such as a child's medical condition) so they are usually designated to cover the costs of a specific need not for general living expenses. --209.205.xxx.xx

I'm not sure honestly. I would THINK that the money would be used to house and food (aka support) the child but then it wouldn't surprise me that it wouldn't be garnishable for that same reason.

Probably depends on how much it is on whether I would even consider it. The last tenant I had that had foster kids (not the same thing that you are talking about but maybe similar enough?) I didn't take the money into consideration to make the "3x the rent" and we were "OK"... they ended up purchasing a house a year later. --69.201.xx.xxx

I've never heard of adoption income. Foster care, yes, and some kids get Medicaid and other benefits for life if they are adopted out of the system. But I don't think the parents get lifetime checks do they? --173.28.xx.xxx

Having said that, foster care income could be pretty steady depending on where you live and what the needs of the community are. If they are good foster parents that is - and even if they are not, the system is so desperate for them that they will put up with some major shte... --173.28.xx.xxx

One of my adult children is foster parent. They get $650 every month for each child and Medicaid covers all medical.

Childcare eats up the entire allowance because both adults work full time. If your applicant stays home and keeps most of the money I would consider the income as a backup, safety net, like overtime income.

Another person has 6 children x $650 = $3900/month. (2 children, then accepted a family of 4). Had to buy a 12 passenger van. He is a seasonal worker so in the off season he's a full time Dad. Plenty of consistent income.

The downside: Foster children come and go so the checks come and go. Sometimes 2 weeks, sometimes 2 years.

The goal of fostering is to restore the family with temporary care for the children, so the goal is for the kids to go back to parents. SOME stay and are adopted but the checks continue.

I would ask for proof of the income and a group Zoom with you. applicant, and their social worker about the situation.

Worth checking into

BUT...

MY goal is to find normal, easy to rent to people.

BRAD

I would ask them how long each child has been with them and the expectations of how long they will stay. --73.103.xxx.xxx

One of my peeps in the hood made a living as a foster parent. She was wait listed for S8 so the foster gig was quicker/easier. She was the one who took in the kids when the police arrested mom/dad at midnight.

Easy money ... legally working from home in the hood. --198.168.xx.xxx

If I were in your shoes, it would be a great time to call children and youth services at the county and ask some pointed questions about how long the children have been there and how stable the foster parents are.

The way I see it, the county is employing these adults to help out with raising at risk kids. As the employer, these should be able to give you some general info. --24.101.xxx.xxx

The kids are just regular kids. BIG security protocols to protect the kids AND the foster parents.

Often the adults are the sweetest, most patient, most responsible people you'd ever meet.

We looked into foster to adopt a long time ago. One thing that stuck in my mind was that any damage to your property (at least here in ohio) was YOURR responsibility, not the County's.

You might want to check that out, and require renters' insurance or something like that. --76.189.xxx.xxx

We adopted a child through the county and received about $450/month for her support through age 18. There was nothing shady or worrisome about the situation. I don't know whether the income was garnishable, though. --98.210.xx.xxx

Well my foster peep in the hood had a 6 foot 4 inch convicted bank robber BF in the house ... he was out on parole. The kids they took in were less of a concern.

Hope your results vary. --198.168.xx.xxx
