Schaumburg DCFS Adoption Attorney

Cook County Family Lawyer for Adoption Matters

Expanding a family through adoption can be a fulfilling goal. This can ensure that a family can provide a home filled with love to a child who is in need. In some cases, children in the foster care system may be at risk of potential harm, and they may benefit from establishing permanent relationships with new families. While adoption may be an option in these situations, it will involve complex legal requirements, and an experienced attorney can provide guidance on the best steps adoptive parents can take to protect their rights and meet the needs of the child in question.

Each year, the Illinois Department of Children & Family Services (DCFS) places thousands of children with foster families for a number of reasons. Children may be removed from their parents' homes due to issues related to abuse, neglect, abandonment, or other safety concerns. Foster families can provide a caring, stable home life for children while DCFS works towards reuniting the children with their birth parents. However, reuniting children with their birth parents is not always feasible, and children may benefit from remaining with a family that can provide them with the necessary care and build permanent relationships.

If DCFS has approved care for a child in your home, and you wish to move forward with the adoption process for that child, you will require help from a DCFS-approved attorney. Anderson Attorneys, P.C. can help you take steps to establish the legal relationship that will sanction the emotional bond you have formed with a foster child. We can address any concerns that may arise during the adoption process, including objections to the adoption by birth parents, and we can make sure you meet all legal requirements to become the child's legal parent.

Cook County DCFS Adoption Attorney

Although a foster family may have established a solid relationship that is filled with security and love, the adoption process following foster care can be time-consuming and complex. Before the adoption can proceed, the child's biological parents must have their parental rights terminated. In some cases, parents may not want to give up their parental rights, and they may object to the adoption and attempt to regain custody of their child. We can help parents take steps to overcome these objections and demonstrate that a parent is unfit to provide care for their child. This may involve demonstrating that the parent has abandoned the child, has engaged in acts of child abuse or neglect, has substance abuse issues or other safety concerns, or does not have the ability to provide the necessary care for the child.

Regardless of what obstacles may arise, we can provide legal guidance to help ensure that an adoption case will proceed through the family court system. We will work with parents to demonstrate that they are the best choice to provide for a child's needs, and we will work to show that the adoption will be in the child's best interests. With our help, parents can achieve their goals of completing the adoption process and becoming the legal parents of a foster child.

Our DCFS-approved attorney is a qualified legal professional who understands the importance of preserving the relationships that families have formed with foster children. We work to ensure that a family's needs will be met and that they will have the resources for ongoing success. Unlike traditional adoption, DCFS covers the adoption fees involved in these cases, which can give families peace of mind when pursuing adoption in this manner.
