Jill Kucera, Esq. Senior Assistant Attorney General, Human Services, Wyoming Attorney General’s Office and Maureen Clifton, Deputy Compact Administrator and Social Services Program Analyst, Wyoming Department of Family Services will present an overview of two compacts that Wyoming has adopted: the Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children (ICPC) and the Interstate Compact for Juveniles (ICJ).
This presentation will clarify many misconceptions about these Compacts, especially the ICPC. The presenters will address the law and regulations governing these compacts including their purpose, eligibility, circumstances when they apply and required submissions. Maureen Clifton will review the forms required for submission, which will be included in the handouts.
The audience will learn about when the ICPC and ICJ Compacts apply, how to and where to file submission forms, and what to do if their request is denied by the other state.
