I am a foster grandmother. The social worker said i need to prove he is not a possible threat to my foster children. In other words not around anymore.
Does the social worker not believe that he is dead? What indication is there that he would pose any threat if he were alive? This sounds absurd.. You could contact the state office of vital statistics and see about requesting a copy of the death certificate. An obituary or other proof of the funeral service may satisfy this person.
