What info on receiver is needed?
« on: February 20, 2013, 08:25:44 AM »
When requesting an Intersatate Compact Agreeement what info is needed on the receiver (the person the inmate will live with), do they request a criminal background check? If so on what level...state? Federal? If the receiver has a really old conviction for an unrelated offense would that cause an issue? Thx for any info or help

Also, if you have specific questions, Michelle Buscher in Springfield and ask specific questions:

I read through all that before I posted my question, didn't find what I was looking for. I was hoping to get an answer from someone who went thru the process, I will keep researching. Thanks for the responses

Have you tried calling the receiving state and ask their requirements?

We have not gotten that far as to know what state we are going to yet, I am just collecting information to get a better understanding of the process for when that time comes. We are currently under appeal so that is what we are relying on at this point, the ICA is a backup plan incase we lose the appeal
