Taking in a 15yo girl

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I am looking for help!!! I am taking in a 15yo girl that has been a friend of my daughters since they were 8... I have been asked by her family to take her in with me and my children... The problem I have is they are asking me how much I want them to send every month to raise her... I honestly don't know how much to tell them so I am asking for help!!! They are having there lawyer draw up paper work and a power of attorney so if I have to take her to the doctor or enroll her in school I can. (They live out of state). They will also provide insurance for her. Thanks,Mat

can you just do whatever the child support rate would be for your state?

Why isn't she living with her family? Does she have any special needs?

Yeah, I would find out what the foster care rate for teens is in your state.  Seems like a good place to start.
