At the Administrative Appeal

Sometimes Illinois Department of Children and Family Services may indicate a parent or caretaker for abuse and neglect. If the “indicated” finding is not appealed, then a parent or caretaker can remain in the State Central Register, a computerized database compiled by the Department of Children and Family Services for between 5 and 50 years. . In order to stop one’s name from entering this database, there is an appeal process that must be followed.  Let Alan Novick complete this process for you, ensuring your name stays out of the State Central Register. Alan Novick has established a good working relationship with investigators, caseworkers and administrative law judges in helping parents and caretakers appeal indicated findings. If this is your problem please call for an appointment at 309-828-7155 to review the facts of your case.
