Will you take my case?
What clients the law firms attorneys can help is at the sole discretion of the law firm, we do not have any influence over the law firm or the lawsuit.
These lawsuits are very complicated due to the nature of the complaint and the different State laws and statutory restrictions. In addition to this, our law firms have many restrictions on what types of plaintiffs they’re willing to represent in their child services lawsuits. This does not mean that your particular situation or legal maters are without merit, they simply do not fit into our lawsuits.
Common Reasons For Denial:
- Your legal matter is totally unrelated to our child services lawsuits: Read about our child services lawsuits.
- You’re a bad plaintiff, your serious criminal record, violent history or previous child abuse disqualifies you.
- You have no right to make a claim.
- A parent actually harmed their child
- Someone in the house was neglecting or abusing the child.
- A child was exposed to or put in in danger while under the custody of a parent(s).
- A child was exposed to illegal activity such as: Drug use, drug sales, domestic violence etc.
- Statute of Limitations has expired, speak to a local lawyer about how the statute of limitations may relate to your case.

What are the lawsuits about?
At this current time, we can only assist victims of child services in 3 areas.
Lawsuit One: Wrongful Removal of Children and Reasonable Efforts to keep a Family United. This lawsuit has two basic points: Children were removed from a good home and put into foster care without just cause and child services did not make a reasonable effort to preserve or unify families.
Lawsuit Two: A Family Was Not Offered a Fair Trial.This lawsuit has two basic points: Children were removed from a good home and put into foster care without just cause and the family was not given an opportunity to fight for their child in court.
Lawsuit Three: Foster Care Abuse. When a child is placed in foster care one would expect a child to be safe from all forms of abuse. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. In fact, it is far too common for children to be taken from a stable home only to be seriously neglected and abused in foster care. If your child was placed in a group home, emergency shelter, foster home or residential care home and was abused or neglected in anyway, you may have a lawsuit.
Is this a Class Action?
No. In most child services class actions it is more difficult to have the children returned home, we file complaints on behalf of each plaintiff. Our number one goal in this lawsuit is to have good families be united again.
Is this lawsuit nationwide?
