Thank you for using our forum. My name is ***** ***** I hope to assist you today.
I have reviewed your question above, and perhaps there is something more specific that I can help you address.
Minnesota CPS regulations (like other states) gives priority placement consideration to children's families. Minnesota is one of the states that gives expansive definitions to the definition of family.
You can find more information on the specific federal regulations that apply to this, as well as a discussion of what exactly goes into a CPS placement here: https://www.childwelfare.gov/pubPDFs/placement.pdf
I suspect that based upon your question, you have a much more specific issue or concern that you are worried about than the general policies and procedures of CPS in Minnesota, if you can elaborate I may be able to assist you better.
