Minnesota appeals court upholds family rights in foster care cases

 

January 10, 2019



In a victory for relatives of children placed in foster care, a Minnesota appeals court has ruled that child welfare agencies in Minnesota must go through a formal court proceeding before ruling out family members as adoptive parents for neglected children.

A three-judge panel of the Minnesota Court of Appeals decided last month that Anoka County Social Services violated state law when it denied a woman’s petition to be the adoptive parent of her three grandchildren without first obtaining a court order expressly excluding her.
