As a parent, the last thing you want is danger to your child or another. CHIPS stands for the "Child in Need of Protection and/or Services" law which helps children. Family law attorney Margaret O'Connor has dealt with numerous CHIPS cases over the years. When a child comes to court because a parent has hurt them or not taken care of them, this is a CHIPS case.
Until children become of legal age, he or she is dependent on adults and need their protection. If a parent can’t or will not take care of their child properly, the juvenile court will step in and the child might become in need of protection and services from the court in order to keep them safe. We will work to represent you in your time of need and will help you work through the Illinois or Wisconsin court system to find a resolution to your case.
