A set of laws created in the form of a suggested model state statue covering a specific area of law that is of general concern to all states, which is usually drafted by a committee with input from all or a large number of the states. This compact legislation is then voluntarily enacted into law in its model form, or in a slightly customized form, by the legislatures of those states that choose to become part of the Compact Group. The adoption of Interstate Compacts helps to standardize state laws across the country on covered topics.
Question: I think my probation officer is not telling the truth about the interstate compact? Is it true that Missouri laws regarding the interstate compact override the ICAOS rules(in the icaos rule book) ? this is what i was told by my PO supervisor, but i find it hard to believe that every state has its own set of rules. if that were true there would be no purpose for the interstate compact. So my question is, Is there one set of national rules or does every state have its own rules?
Answer: Laws are established by state legislature, so they will vary.

Question: Can someone explain the Interstate Compact on Placement of Children? What does signing this mean and what rights are the parents losing etc? My sister was asked to sign this to send her daughter to a camp in another state. She doesn't understand why.
Basically its giving permission from what I understand.
When I was in foster care I was in the custody of arkansas and new york state. however, my mother had already filed to terminate her rights. and my father just basically didnt do anything.
the termination means no contact until age 18, she legally was not my mother anymore. The state becomes the parent, legal guardian etc.
I should also add that it took about a year for paperwork and things to get finalized just for me to leave the state.
If your niece is in care, then, most likely if your sister hasn't terminated rights then its just a permission form to grant the other state that her daughter is going in to have jurisdiction.
which I forewarn you causes a lot of drama. Once I was in NY and living with my aunt and then other group homes, the states began to argue back and forth as to who was responsible for what, such as clothing vouchers. I had to wait 5 years and i finally called the commissioner myself to get new clothes and a much needed winter jacket.
The there will be the court dates and sporadic visitation.
but if your sister has filed to terminate her rights then uh... well your niece is going to go through a lot, and your sister will not be allowed to see or talk or write her daughter until the child is 18, and thats if the child has forgiven her.
im just going off of my experience.

Question: I filed an Interstate Compact Transfer from PA to TX. My fiancee lives there. What are my chances? My fiancee is willing and able to provide for me financially. I was told by PA that because I am not married to him I won't be accepted based on PA's regulations. They also told me they have never filed a transfer to TX before. Can anyone tell me what to do to increase my chances? Or what my chances are?
Answer: I have bad luck with transfers to texas too. I have had a handful request transfer texas in the last 17 years, but no one accepted.
I have been told that the problem is that Texas probation officers work for their local judges and not a state agency. That being the case, they don't have to worry much about the state coming down on them if they dont accept a transfer. My guess is that the judges they work for would be just as happy to keep other states criminals out of texas.
I dont have any advice to give you to increase your chances. Good luck.
Question: Does Maryland have an interstate compact agreement with Virginia? I am doing some research on having a friend serving time in a medium level security correctional center in Virginia transferred to Maryland, where all of his family is. I found some info on it, but it says the receiving state, (Maryland in this case,) has to have an interstate compact agreement with the sending state, (Virginia.) I cannot find this information anywhere!!! Do you know if they do, or where I can find the answer? Thanks in advance!!!
Answer: yes it does.
he can move from va to md, but if he were in md (and tried in md) and wanted to go to va? he'd be out of luck.
Question: Interstate compact probation transfer's from Texas to california? I would like to know if anyone has info regarding transfer of probation from texas to california (felony probation) I have done 5-years and have 3 to go. How long does it typically take for a non-expedited request to be accepted by california??
Please mail me at Bullybeer@aol.com with any info,..I would love to hear from anyone with knowledge on this subject. Thank you.
Answer: California has 45 days to investigate and respond to a transfer request... Add on some time for the paperwork to get from the local California probation officer to the California Interstate Compact office in Sacramento to the Texas Interstate Compact office in Austin to your local Texas PO, I would say that 2 months is the longest you should have to wait... If you're waiting any longer than that, the Texas Interstate Compact office should be contacting the California Interstate Compact office to remind them that they are violating Compact rules...
In regards to the other question you asked in your e-mail, once you transfer to California, you will be bound by Texas AND California rules, so if you want to be able to use that particular form of medication, I'd suggest getting the Texas Court's permission before you leave... Your attorney can file a motion with the Court, asking the judge to allow you to use it...

My family is in Arkansas , my job is in Arkansas and if I wait the two or three months my job will be lost.
