Placing children with relatives overseas

Initial considerations before assessing a potential kinship carer

This Practice Note emphasises the initial aspects to consider before seeking to assess a potential kinship carer who lives overseas. It is not intended to cover all aspects of the topic, but to help establish basic eligibility. It also highlights obstacles and legal complexity that may cause difficulty and delay, and in some cases may lead to a local authority recognising – sooner than might have been the case – that the proposed kinship arrangement will be impossible to achieve.
