Cost of Children's Residential Services

Depending on their income, parents or other responsible parties are liable for some or all of the costs for minors placed in foster homes, group homes, treatment institutions, and correctional facilities. If the parents are separated or divorced, each parent has a shared and equal responsibility for the cost.  If a minor resides in a foster home or group home for more than thirty (30) days, Walworth County's Child Support Enforcement unit manages the collection of fees.
