PDFWAC 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:
(a) Within seven days of the date we approve assistance for the child;
(b) How to ask for family reconciliation services from the department; and
(c) 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.
