If your child (or children) have been removed from the home by the Missouri Division of Family Services or, the Illinois Department of Children & Family Services or the Kansas Department for Children or Families, you need legal help. We can help in these circumstances.

In some instances where they belive that abuse or neglect has occured, or if you have a substantiated finding that you abused or neglected your child, the state may act to remove your children. If you want to remain a part of the life of your children, it is important that you act quickly to ensure that your parental rights are maintained and your contact is re-established.
