DCFS Adoption Attorney in Orland Park

Cook County DCFS adoption lawyer

Cook County Lawyer for Illinois Department of Children and Family Services Adoptions

Each year, the Illinois Department of Children & Family Services (DCFS) places thousands of children with foster families for a wide range of reasons. While DCFS works to reunite the children with their birth families, those who have opened their hearts and homes as foster parents provide a safe, loving environment for the ones who need it most. Many foster parents develop a very strong relationship with the children placed in their care, and when reunification with the birth family is not possible, will often look to make the bond permanent through adoption.

If you are considering the adoption of a child placed with you through DCFS, you will be required to obtain the assistance of an attorney who has been specifically approved by DCFS. At Anderson and Associates, P.C., we are dedicated to helping foster parents seek full parental rights while navigating the adoption process.

Orland Park, Illinois DCFS Adoption Lawyer

When foster parents pursue the adoption of a child who has been placed with them, they offer the child, maybe for the first time in his or her life, a warm and caring home. They look to provide a sense of permanent security and the love that he or she so desperately needs. While such intentions are important to the relationship between the foster parents and the child, they alone are not enough to complete the adoption. Adoption proceedings are often complex and time-consuming, but our attorneys havre the experience and knowledge necessary to simplify the process as much as possible. We are equipped to help all types of families complete their DCFS adoptions.

Caring DCFS-Approved Attorney in Illinois

The Department of Child & Family Services maintains its panel of approved adoption attorneys to ensure that families get the service they need from an appropriately qualified legal professional. The DFCS also covers the attorneys' fees associated with the adoption process, allowing prospective adoptive parents to focus their energy and resources on meeting the needs of their family.

While the panel of DCFS-approved attorneys may include other lawyers whose credentials meet the department's criteria, no other firm is quite like ours. At Anderson and Associates, P.C., we combine our experience and skill with a compassion for families that results in unmatched client service. We are proud to bring that dedication to the DCFS adoption process.
