10A NCAC 71A .0702 MOVEMENT OF ADULT TO ANOTHER COUNTY
(a) If a disabled adult who moves to another county has consented to the provision of protective services and no court order is involved, the county department providing protective services shall ask the disabled adult to consent for information to be shared with the department in the new county of residence. If the adult does not consent, the department providing protective services shall not share information with the department in the new county of residence. If the adult consents, the department shall notify the department in the new county of residence of the disabled adult's situation. The department in the new county of residence shall contact the disabled adult to determine whether or not protective services continue to be needed and, if so, if the disabled adult consents to their provision.
(b) If the department in the original county of residence has been providing protective services under a court order, the department shall file a motion in the court to be relieved of responsibility because the disabled adult has moved to another county. The department shall make a protective services referral to the department in the new county of residence. The department in the new county of residence shall evaluate the adult's current situation to determine whether or not protective services are needed and, if so, shall request authority to provide services.
