WAC 388-454-0025

Effective January 7, 2002

WAC 388-454-0025 The department notifies a child's parent when we approve assistance and the child is living with someone other than their parent

  1. The department makes a reasonable effort to contact the parent with whom the child last lived when we find out that a child applying for assistance lives with someone other than the child's parent.  We tell the parent:

    1. Within seven days of the date we approve assistance for the child; 

    2. How to ask for family reconciliation services from the department; and

    3. How to request the child's address and location as allowed under WAC 388-428-0010.

  2. We do not notify the parent when there is evidence to support a claim that the parent has abused or neglected the child.
