Every state has a sending and receiving office that will monitor adoption parties, unless the child is being moved between relatives without state intervention. The ICPC office in the child's state of origin is called the sending office and will check-in with the receiving state and adoptive family post-placement. The sending state is the one with the right to remove the child if the ICPC office does not see the placement as a fit environment for a child. To avoid this, some states may require a criminal background check and screen for child abuse charges in addition to requesting a home study.
