No, the last one got out of his when he was just over 8 because he was too tall for and too heavy.

I don't know your daughter's age/size, so I don't know if she should be in a booster or not. But I just wanted to say that DHS/CPS/etc are sometimes the *worst* people to talk to about carseat safety. I co-manage a daycare and I hear stories all the time from foster parents about the CPS workers who bring them children in improper seats. 10mo babies FFing, or a 2.5yo in a lbb. Foster moms here on CM talk about it as well. The only people who can truly be trusted to check installs/approve seats are certified car seat techs.

Quoting paganmommy4:

She sits in a camo booster seat with a seatbelt ( approved by DHS child welfare) and my youngest sits in a five point harness seat.. I even asked a cop about the booster seat and he said it was fine..

Yes - my 8 year old still is in one as that is what allows him to ride safely.

I would definitely recommend that you post in the car seat group. They have a lot of great, informed techs in there. :)

Booster seats are required BY LAW in Wisconsin until your child reaches the age of 8, the height limit or the weight limit.

I have enough parental guilt as it is. My daughter was in hers until she was 12. She is 15 now. My younger boys are 10 and 6 and they still use theirs.
