1st time on this blog.....thought I was the only one with issues with DCFS.
Unbeleivable how wide spread this is..... and how long things have been going on.....
My issues started Early JUne of this year.
Took both my kids... Same BS and tactics that I have been reading about.
Just filed my own POC (Petition of Custody), and have contacted INspector General for DCFS......Oh, and also I am seeking Damages of $5M....for all the Scurrilous Conduct by DCFS.
Will see how this goes, Could use a Good , Agressive Lawyer to help me run with this.....in Civil and Federal court.....
God Bless you all.....

Just wondering how this worked out for you? Been fighting these guys for almost 3 years. Completed all services, passed every drug test, and yet they always find something to prevent our daughter from coming home. Any suggestions?

she was hit at home. Yes, I've slapped my daughters hand, but I do not consider that abuse. I've been a single father all my daughters life with full custody, and I do not know how to punish her without the state breathing down my back.
How about not hitting your children. Seems simple to me.

After dcfs stepped into my life from the birth of my second child my daughter finding drugs in her maconem but not her blood nor urine remind you neither her nor I had active drugs in our system they just based it upon the first poop collected at the hospital allowing me to take my baby home and after four days showed up on my door step with county cops demanding I give them my children. My grandmother died the same day of my daughters birth and they allowed me to take my children home the worst feeling is knowing you are getting attached to your child and or childre for some days and they come back saying you are sout to be neglectant parent but allowed you to take them for four days. If they thought for any second I could not be a parent why would they allow me to take my child from the hospital period? Just a thought. Besides this I have been dealing with them for almost two years dropping clean did parenting classes got my certification re-entered back to school been getting straight A's along with perfect attendance, work up to 25 hours a week being a full time parent and I am two months away from having my third child now. I pay my own bills and got out of a relationship that became violent because my kids were taken from my hands. I have been clean I attend CADS still for the fifth month and haven't been in no legal trouble ever, with having this baby I fear. I fear that they are going to rip my child right out of my hands again, I also fear now that my children are 2 and 3 that they will grow up hating me that I will be able to gain custody of this child and they will be confused to why they can not come home with mommy but the baby can I don't want any of my children thinking that they are going to be treated different in any way. As a 23 about to be 24 year old single mother I don't know what to do to make things any better I am and have done what they ask of me and the whole school thing being extra the courts have not asked of me but to look good on my part. The question is when will this end?
23 years old and having your 3rd after having your others taken by DCFS? Have you heard of birth control? You should give it a try.

We need DCFS but we need them to be honest. My brothers little girl was taken away. My brother had 3 or 4 friends over. They were watching a game having some beers. The cops in this small town constantly harrassed him, this day they barged into his house and since he was drinking underage they called DCFS. My neice was taken away and put into my care tempor. I was told it would only be for a few weeks while they investigated, well i have a evil crazy sister who wants a baby and cant have one of her own. she is jealous and evil so she kept calling dcfs on my brother so he couldnt get her back. DCFS would not even investigate these claims. they believed them. After about 4 months Of taking care of her i couldn't do it any longer, the drama and DCFS was an overload to me. I worked 60 hours a week and it was not fair she had to be in daycare 10 hour days. I had her go live with a Different sister, well my other crazy sister kept calling DCFS making accusations(she was upset the baby didnt go to her) so they took my niece away again, she has been with out her parents for about a year now. This baby was never abused,never hurt in anyway. And they will not give her back. i have been there since she was born, and i am not even able to see her. I love this girl so much and it breaks my heart that DCFS would try and keep children away from family members. I have always been a healthy influence on my niece and now I can not see her because in IL aunts do not have any rights. It's sick and I am so hurt over this. Someone needs to stop these people from destroying lives!
You are seriously surprised that they took a baby away from a teen father that was participating in underage drinking? If you think that this is an acceptable behavior, no wonder you people are losing kids.
This is ridiculous.

I just read a lot of the things that people have posted on here. I don't understand the whole DCFS thing, I have been involved with them for the last 3 years and they took my kids and placed them in a safe place, and then they took them out of there and placed them with their biological father where they were both abused and they took them out of there and now people are finally starting to believe me that something is going on there that my 6 and 7 year old boys are scared to tell the truth.

I agree with your kids being taken away. From what you wrote yourself, you are a bad mother and don't deserve them.

The thing is, ALL i see on this page is a bunch of people saying how bad the system is, I'd like anyone who has written something on here saying that the system is bad or full of crap to tell me if they have ever been in the system as in being a child in the Dcf or foster care system, cause i bet 100 dollars that half of you, are bad parents who have actually done something really wrong to your kids and you dont think it is because you were probably raised the same way, and dcf actually somehow caught you or someone turned you in and you feel shitty enough to sit there and make dcf look absolutly horrible cause you know that really your the one who's wrong and there's nothing you can do about it. I Also bet that none of you will fess up that you have done anything wrong cause you all think you raise your kids the right way. I was a kid in the system since i was 12 and im 17 and just got out of it last year, It saved my Life and my brothers and sisters, and they all are now adopted out and have great lives and their happier then ever and so am I. The Dcf System isn't as bad as you all try to make it out to be.
Brandy, I aged out. Ten years in the system. I was there for abuse. Now my five children are in foster care. Why? I caught my ex beating my child and I turned him in. Does that sound like I'm a mother who would do nothing or let anyone else hurt my child? No. They took my children for the $10k in child support my ex husband owes.

I want to hear that scumbag Erwin McEwen APOLOGIZE.

Illinois DCF$ is a corrupt, incompetent, renegade bureaucracy with a communist philosophy that uses Gestapo tactics under a veil of secrecy to operate above the law and outside the moral norms of society to harm children and destroy innocent families while wasting millions of the taxpayers money.
The last thing we need is more government psycho-psychiatrists, psycho-psychologists, psycho-therapists, psycho-counselors and psycho-caseworkers who would be out of work were it not for Illinois abducting children based on HEARSAY AND LIES, and HOLDING THESE CHILDREN HOSTAGE until the parents consent to be treated like laboratory rats undergoing psychological experimentation based on JUNK SCIENCE and VOODOO PSYCHOLOGY.
The state has granted the worst kind of people power far in excess of their intellectual capacity and moral integrity, and has created a bureaucracy that attracts the worse kind of sick sadists who perpetrate a fraud on the juvenile courts of Illinois with their lies and misrepresentation of families and conspire to defraud the federal government by holding children in foster care far beyond any reasonable need.
DCF$= Government at war with families.
We need laws with teeth to put any DCFS agent, enabler, cooperator or collaborator in PRISON for any abuse of power especially the seizure of children whose life is not in danger.
The HARM child protective services does to children with its wacko procedures and policies is well documented by intelligent researchers, but the political hacks and child traffickers are not going to give up all those $$$$$$$$$$ just because they are harming children.
Don't think the lazy, stupid caseworkers do anything in the best interests of the child. All they care about is their own comfort and convenience and all their falsified reports to make them look like heroes.
DCF$ makes me want to vomit.
The only thing I want to hear out of McKewen's mouth is how sorry he is for all the harm this agency has done, and apologize to all the innocent parents and children that they have victimized.
I want all those DCFS attorneys fired and DCFS to GET OUT OF DENIAL about what a bunch of lying rabid weasels they are and CONFESS and PROVIDE a forum to all the parents they have wrongly accused.
We need to investigate how CASA acts as a propaganda arm for foster care profiteers, and how they deliberately collaborate to destroy families. We need to have their secret reports professionally audited by someone completely independent and compensated by how many CASA volunteers they send to prison for LYING AND HARMING CHILDREN.
I curse DCF$- MAY GOD DAMN DCF$ TO H3LL.
Any parent who is not willing to sacrifice their life destroying those who stole their children does not deserved to be a parent.
Im with you. Working on getting them investigated now. They are taking my son for no reason at all. I will never give up.

I do agree that if the situation is volatile and the kids r bein abused n neglected that absolutely they should b removed from the house for their own protection n well being but there's alot of families out there that have been ripped apart n completely obliterated for no reason at all. The kids were never in any danger of abuse or neglect n were well taken care of n loved to the utmost degree n were fully happy n content w their lives until they got ripped out of their home n bounced from foster home to foster home until they ended up in the ghetto w sum ignorant, toothless , abusive woman who's done nothin but destroy the kid's happiness n relationship w their mother which was the corner stone of their lives before it got destroyed by corrupt, lying, heartless, greedy bastards who could care less about all the intensive therapy that they will need to deal w all the horrible shit that's happened to them since they've been in foster care.

No ur not the only one dealing w issues and DCFS all they do is lie n falsify reports n ive been dealing w their bullshit for 7yrs now n i've done everything that was asked of me all the services all the therapy n have been sober for yrs but they choose not to acknowledge any of the positive things that i've accomplished they only wish to focus on the old me which i have completely turned my life around n want nothing more but to b reunited w my kids who r just miserable stuck in foster care but the courts will not give me a chance to prove them wrong n show them i can take much better care of my babies than the ignorant, abusive, dirty piece of crap who managed to become a foster parent which God only knows how that happened, the point being these jerks think the know what's best for my kids n they don't know a single thing about either of them let alone what's best for them. When they refuse to even speak to them about their situation n the abuse they suffer w that horrible, ghetto ass woman that they have taking care of them that i doubt even graduated high school but she's supposed to b a better parent than me!! What a crock of crap!! My kids HATE this lady n even begged the caseworker to move them back to one of their old foster homes cause at least they weren't being abused there but the caseworker did nothing to help my kids get moved out of an abusive home but yet they couldn't wait to get them away from my mother n i've been trying to get them home ever since PLEASE IF ANYONE ELSE IS OUT THERE THAT HAS BEEN WRONGED BY DCFS PLEASE CONTACT ME I THINK WE SHOULD ALL BAND TOGETHER N C IF THERE'S A WAY TO STOP THEM FROM BREAKING THE LAW N KIDNAPPING KIDS FROM PERFECTLY GOOD HOMES N FAMILIES .......a very desperate mother

I raised my grandson from 4/2005 until 6/2010 when his mom found out that she was committing fraud by getting child support and public aide, she even file her taxes for all the years I had my grandson. I was told if I went to Minnesota to get him that he could attend school out in chicago ,il. So I went and got him and got him ready to be put in school. She told me to let b him spend time with his dad and he wouldn't give h back. Dcfs stepped in and my grandson was put in the hospital so I went to Springfeild to stay with him. We were at St,John's Hospital for 2 days when I was told that the contact my son left for a second time was for me to get my grandson. Dcfs told me they would have my grand son with me in a week and also told him the same with promises to him and me both. Dcfs found a case from 1979 when I was in college and my son was left at home by my oldest sister and mother. She told me that she would do a waiver. She walked around sexually harassing my so that was twenty four telling him to take off his shirt so she can also take pictures of him. I have taken care of my grand from birth to now. He told them he didn't want any body to see him but me. Dcfs laughed at me with his mom in the court room and because dcfs was white and mom was white it's a clear case of sexually harassment and discrimination. Dcfs told me since my som commuted the crime he had no rights and say so about my grandson life anymore. I know he told them cause I was called because he told them to give his son to me. So dcfs does what they want and this will get told........I love my grandson dearly and his mom physically and verbally abuse him. Any help please.

Look, I'm A 17 Year Old Who Has Been In The Dcf, Or Foster Care System Before, For 3 Years, Yeah I Understand Maybe You Might Have Gotten A Real Bitch Of A Caseworker And It Might Like Their Being Heartless And Tearing Apart Your Family But Their Doing Their Jobs. Not All Of The Caseworkers And Dcf Systems Are Bad, I Was Living With A Perverted Grandfather, And A Grandmother Who Didn't Even Give A Shit, My Mom Passed Away, There Was No Food In The House, They Locked My Younger 7 Year Old Brother In His Room And Had A Huge Ass Pad Lock On The outside So He Couldnt Get Out, They Wouldnt Feed Him, Didnt Even Let Him Use The Bathroom, He Sat In His Room In Nasty Dirty, Pissing Fucking Clothes Because Of Those Bastards, They Got Drunk Every Night And I Had To Sneak Around And Try And Get My Brother Some Food From The Neighbors Or Scrounge Up Money From Change Lying Around To Get Some, And Clean Him Up And Watch Him Cry And Cry Because By The Time The Sun Was Coming Up And My Fucked Up So Called "Grandparents" Were Getting Up, I Had To Leave Him In That Room. I Also Had A Younger 9 Year Old Sister Living With Me That Everynight I Would Lye Awake All Night To Make Sure She'd Be Okay And That What Happend To Me By Our "Grandfather" Didn't Happen To Her. And I Did Something About It, I Called Dcf And I Testified Against My Grandparents, And My Brother And Sister And We Have Great Lives! Yeah It Was A Little Ruff Being In The Foster Care System But It Was A Hell Of Alot Better Being There Instead Of Enduring The Abusing, Neglecting Shit That I Already Went Through. Kids Should Not Be Around Drugs. They Shouldn't Have To Go Starving, Or With No Clothes OR With Parents Who Don't Give A Fuck To Even Pay Attention To Them Cause Their Too Fucking Busy Getting High Or Drunk.
and I'm glad for you and who ever needed a Professional work who knows what's best for the child. Amen.......

Yes, please my children and I need help too. Dcfs has ripped my family apart and yes they made sure to appoint me sum piece of crap lawyer to who did absolutely nothing to help us. He let their corrupt and evil caseworkers mow us down and did nothing. It's been over 7yrs now that I've been fighting to get them back with no end in sight. I don't know wat to do anymore, they've destroyed our lives. And the worst part is that my kids were never abused or neglected until these bastards put them in foster care, then the real abuse occured. How is a renegade agency like this able to just rip good families apart because they can't afford to fight them. I thought our country had safeguards against this sort of kidnapping to protect us. It's nothing but bullshit. I just want my babies back and our lives to normal, which after what's happened to us, I don't think that will ever be possible. Please if there is anyone out there that can help, I'm begging for it for me and my family.

Unfortunately, that is completely untrue. If you ever have the misfortune of DFACS stepping into your life, you will quickly realize that it doesn't matter what's "fair" or truly in your child's best interest. They make judgement calls about where your child/children should be placed based entirely upon perception, and meanwhile, you are forced to spend tens of thousands of dollars fighting them to simply 'hear you out'. I am locked in a battle like this presently, and can assure you, I have provided my child with the best of opportunities and a very complete and nurturing childhood thus far. However, due to a situation at school that opened the door for DFACS involvement, a case manager appeared at our house, unannounced, interviewed me, took every comment/answer I provided out of context (or blatantly disregarded what I had said) and 'boom'- within two business days I received a summons, and without ever being allowed to speak to a judge on my behalf, my daughter was placed with a family member, with whom thankfully, I have a very positive relationship. It has become an uphill battle and has been extremely difficult on all members of our family. My experience may not be that of everyone, but what I can draw from this is that DFACS grants a very wide lattitude of power to some very inattentive or untrained individuals who can wreak havoc on your family life in ways that you didn't think think were legal. My only advice to those who find theirselves in situations such as mine is to obtain a very experienced lawyer who knows the system and how to 'appease' these people, so that they will leave you alone and allow you your God given right to parent your children.
