Section 5153.19 | Determining ability to pay cost of care.


The public children services agency shall, before entering into any agreement obligating the agency with respect to the care of any child, determine the ability of the child, parent, guardian, or other person to pay for the cost of such care, having due regard for other dependents. Such determination shall, if accepted by the parent, guardian, or other person, be made a part of such agreement. If the executive director has been appointed in lieu of a guardian and is acting as trustee of the estate of the child, such determination shall be subject to the approval of the probate court.
