they will take your considerations into account but they have the final say as to who the child is placed with. The good news is that family members are given priority when it comes to who else the child can be placed with, but the final determination will be what's in the child's best interest. Depending on the situation with your sister (how stable her home life is, whether she has any complaints against her) will determine whether the children can be placed with her. If she is willing she should contact your caseworker and express her desire to have the children be placed with her.

Please let me know if there is anything else you want to discuss. I would be happy to continue this conversation. If so just reply to this response. If you are satisfied with this response, please Accept the answer and provide a rating. Doing so is the only way experts are compensated for the time reviewing and responding to questions as we are not employees of the site. You may also get a request for a telephone call, but that is from the site and not the experts. I hope your legal issue works out to your satisfaction.
