LAKE FOREST, Calif., July 11, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Adoption Network Law Center (ANLC), a professional law corporation that helps build families through adoption, announced today that it has entered into a Consent Decree amicably resolving all issues first raised in an October 2013 Complaint filed by the Illinois Attorney General and the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS).

After Illinois officials conducted a due diligence review of ANLC's practices and policies, it was agreed that ANLC could continue providing its services to Adopting Parents in Illinois so long as ANLC formally registered with the DCFS as an out-of-state law corporation.  Under the Consent Decree, ANLC will continue abiding by Illinois law in providing services that may result in the placement of a child from another state into Illinois.

As noted in the Consent Decree, not only did ANLC fully cooperate in the State's due diligence review by promptly providing all information and evidence requested, but all parties agreed that resolving this dispute short of litigation was in everyone's best interests.  The Consent Decree further notes that ANLC denied all allegations in the State's complaint, and that each party agreed to no findings of fault, liability or wrongdoing.

"We are very pleased to have reached a fair and reasonable agreement with the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services and with Attorney General Lisa Madigan.  We look forward to continuing our efforts of providing professional and nurturing adoption assistance to Adopting Parents in Illinois," said Kristin A.F. Yellin, ANLC's Chief Legal Counsel.

About Adoption Network Law Center:  Adoption Network Law Center is a professional law corporation that prides itself on providing services with integrity and complete support.
