Non-minor dependents on overnight visits

Q:  When a dependent minor wants to have overnight visits away from the caregiver’s home, the county ordinarily does background checks, checks out the home, etc before giving the ok.  Does any of this apply in the case of non-minor dependent?

 A:  There is no longer any requirement to do background checks in this circumstance.  On a practice level, case managers should be encouraging non-minor dependents to inform their caregiver about their whereabouts and when they are expected to return as part of being a responsible adult.
