When Can Assistance Agreements be Terminated?

Parents often wonder under what circumstances the State agency may legally terminate an adoption assistance agreement. According to Section 8.2D.5 of the Child Welfare Policy Manual (CWPM), once an adoption assistance agreement is signed and in effect, it can only be terminated under three circumstances:

  1. the child has attained the age of 18 (or the age of 21 if the State has determined that the child has a mental or physical disability which would warrant continuation of assistance);
  2. the State determines that the adoptive parents are no longer legally responsible for support of the child; or
  3. the State determines that the adoptive parents are no longer providing any support to the child.

Section 473(a)(4)(B) of the Social Security Act states that no adoption assistance payment can be made, "to parents with respect to any child if the State determines that the parents are no longer legally responsible for the support of the child or if the State determines that the child is no longer receiving any support from such parents." The CWPM states that a parent is considered no longer legally responsible for the support of a child when parental rights have been terminated or when the child becomes an emancipated minor, marries, or enlists in the military (Section 8.2D.5).
