In 2018, Congress passed the Family First Prevention Services Act of 2018. (https://familyfirstact.org/resources...t-2018-summary) Implementation of this law is planned for this year (2022). A legal guide for this new law can be found here: https://familyfirstact.org/sites/def...egal-guide.pdf

Recently, we entered into a settlement conference for one of our clients. Their adoption agency states that the couple can easily adoption an infant for our local foster care system. This appears to be a false or misleading statement. This law which begins its implementation phase this year seems to de-prioritize non-related adoption as a permanency option for children in foster care.

Can anyone share which states this law will be used to prioritize adoption as a permanency options as this adoption agency states? Our client states they would like to adopt an infant rather than receive a cash settlement.
