Im a new foster parent who has been doing relative care for 6 months. I just became licensed, and im getting child support checks still. Is is ok to cash the checks, even though im now recieving foster care payments?Can a foster parent in michigan receive child support payment from biological parents?
at this time, the state is now paying for the child, and has the legal authority to get a court order to be reimbursed for the funds spent by them. I would definitely hold off on cashing anything, until you verify it through the social worker.
