Presumptive Transfers

Presumptive Transfers

Children and youth in foster care who are placed outside their home counties, but within California, are provided access to specialty mental health services in a timely manner through “presumptive transfers.” A presumptive transfer establishes a prompt transfer of responsibility for arranging specialty mental health services from the county of original jurisdiction to the county in which a foster child resides.

To contact Tulare County Child Welfare Services regarding a dependent child with a presumptive transfer or a waiver of transfer, email:
