Hi,

This is ultimately a question for the social worker assigned to your foster parent approval process. Based on my experience, the data they seek on your financial status is used to determine whether you can meet the basic financial obligations required to be a foster parent, such as rent, mortgage, utilities, credit card bills, etc. So long as you are employed and/or can show income/savings that will meet these obligations, I don't think bankruptcy matters.

Hi,

I don't know how financial issues will impact your application for foster care. Does it impact your ability to provide care? But, I would say that there is some great info on fostering and supporting youth who choose to maintain a relationship with their bio family, if that is an option. Are you comfortable asking the liason or caseworker you are in contact with?
