Child Welfare Law

If the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) is seeming to be an everyday part of your life, it is rarely a positive experience. The Rinderer Law Firm can help you. We can provide you with legal counsel if a child is in DCFS care and you are either a parent, close relative, or a foster parent. If you have a DCFS case and a criminal case pending the Rinderer Law Firm can provide assistance in both cases. 

The Rinderer Law Firm has experience in DCFS cases when the court is considering

  • Shelter Care Hearing (Temporary Custody, when the case is opening)

  • Adjudication

  • Disposition

  • Permanency Hearing 

  • Termination of Parental Rights
