Safety Plans
A safety plan allows a child or children to stay with someone other than the parent or legal guardian during an investigation. BRE Law can help to guide you through the process.

Appeals
DCFS labels a case as “unfounded” if no proof of abuse or neglect is found, and “indicated” if there is proof of abuse or neglect. If the case is indicated, you could be associated with that finding for up to 50 years in the State Central Register (SCR). You can appeal a finding with the help of a lawyer, and if you win an appeal, your name is removed from the SCR.
