If your social worker thinks you are not caring for your child well enough, s/he may ask you to sign a parenting agreement. It may be a Voluntary Family Reunification (VFR) agreement, or a Voluntary Family Maintenance (VFM) agreement.

If you sign a VFR, you are saying that you

  • agree to get services that may help you to be a better parent, and
  • agree that your child will not stay with you during that time. Your child may live with the other parent, with a relative, or in a foster home.

If you sign a VFM, you are saying that you

  • agree to get services that may help you to be a better parent, and
  • agree that your child will stay with you during that time.
