Illinois Family Law Attorneys

The Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) investigates allegations of child abuse and neglect and is empowered to remove children from their home if it is deemed necessary for the protection of a child. Parents who have been contacted by DCFS concerning an investigation or who have had a child removed from their home should immediately contact an experienced family law attorney to ensure the protection of their rights.
