Wheaton DCFS Adoption Attorney

Glen Ellyn Foster Child Adoption Lawyer

Winfield DCFS Approved Adoption Lawyer

One of the essential services that the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) performs is the placement of children in foster homes. These children have been put under the care of DCFS by Illinois courts for a variety of reasons, and foster families are able to provide them with safety and stability until they are able to be reunited with one or both of their biological parents. In cases where this reunification is not possible, foster parents may decide to pursue adoption of their foster children.

The process of adopting a foster child through DCFS can be complex and time-consuming, but prospective adoptive parents can better understand their rights and responsibilities by securing the services of an experienced adoption attorney.

A DCFS-Approved Attorney On Your Side

For families looking to navigate the DCFS adoption process with minimal complications, an adoption lawyer who has been approved by DCFS to represent foster families can help complete the process as quickly and efficiently as possible. At Anderson and Associates, P.C., attorney Rebecca L. Zeilenga is on the DCFS Statewide Adoption Attorney Panel, and her years of experience providing legal assistance to foster families during the DCFS adoption process is a key factor in helping our clients achieve their goal of providing a stable, permanent home for adoptive children.

During the adoption process, our attorneys will work with you to complete and file the required paperwork, review your adoption subsidy, negotiate any changes to this subsidy, and appear with you in court as you move toward finalizing your adoption.

In foster child adoptions, adoptive parents are eligible for reimbursement from DCFS of up to $1,500 in court costs and legal fees for each child. One of the benefits of utilizing an attorney on the Statewide Adoption Panel is that DCFS can directly pay any attorney fees on your behalf.
