NY Soc Serv L § 457 (2012) What's This?
    §   457.   Out-of-state adoptive parents.  With respect to a child who
  has been adopted within this state but who has been  removed  from  this
  state  by  his  adoptive  parents,  or  a  child who has been adopted by
  residents of another state or of the commonwealth of Puerto Rico and who
  is, or who is likely to become,  a  public  charge  within  this  state,
  payments   under  section  four  hundred  fifty-three  or  four  hundred
  fifty-four of this title may be made pursuant to  an  agreement  between
  the  district  and the adoptive parents, provided that such agreement is
  in accordance with the regulations  of  the  department  promulgated  to
  achieve the objective of increasing the number of adoptions of potential
  public  charges,  with  particular emphasis upon handicapped and hard to
  place children.  Any such agreement shall become void at such time as it
  is determined by the social services official  that  a  child  on  whose
  behalf  payments  are  being  received  pursuant  to  such agreement was
  brought into this state for the sole purpose of  qualifying  prospective
  out-of-state adoptive parents for such payments.  Such determination may
  be  appealed  to the department which, upon receipt of the appeal, shall
  conduct a fair hearing in accordance with the provisions of section four
  hundred fifty-five of this title.
