EAST ST. LOUIS, ILLINOIS DCFS (DEPARTMENT OF CHILDREN AND FAMILY SERVICES) AND ORDERS OF PROTECTION LAWYERS, ST. CLAIR COUNTY
We provide experienced representation in regard to serious issues involving family members, children, parents, grandparents, and others with respect to claims, investigations, charges, and administrative proceedings relating to the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS). There can be situations where charges made are totally unwarranted and not substantiated by facts and those charges can impact not only the lives of the parties involved, but also work situations and/or licensing. Sometimes clients take the position that DCFS is interfering with their rights and attempting to dictate how children are to be raised or attempting to exclude the natural father and/or the natural mother from the lives of the children. We have decades of experience providing representation with respect to Orders of Protection including filing petitions for Orders of Protection and filing responses to petitions for Orders of Protection, not to mention appearing in Court on behalf of clients. Clients sometimes believe that Orders of Protection are too easily granted by Courts and then same impact their parental rights, employment status, firearm rights, and other matters. Sometimes clients ignore the early stages of Order of Protection cases thereby jeopardizing their rights.
