Naperville DCFS Attorney

When your parental rights or child's future is on the line, you need a legal advocate who will work aggressively to ensure protection. At Schaffer Family Law, Ltd., we work with individuals and families who are under fire from the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS). Do not leave the future of you and your children in the hands of the government â" contact David to discuss your options.

Illinois Department of Children and Family Services

According to the DCFS, their mission is to protect and provide for the well-being of Illinois children. Backed by the state government, DCFS monitors and investigates the health, safety and welfare of children. They are often brought into the following types of situations:

  • Allegations of neglect or abuse
  • Juvenile or divorce court matters
  • Adoption proceedings
  • Foster care supervision

If you have been notified of a DCFS investigation into an issue that concerns you or a loved one, you should seek immediate legal representation. If you do not actively pursue your rights, a DCFS investigation can negatively impact your family in many ways. In addition to possible criminal charges, you also risk having your children removed from your home.

If you have already been indicated by DCFS, you have the right to appeal their decision. David will navigate you through the process so you can determine which course of action would best benefit you and your family.
