Lucas, Caden, and Mckenzie Sarakinis are uniting with friends and family to obtain legal representation in order to protect fathers rights

My children and I are in dire need of professional legal assistance. After several years of being together my wife and I separated. I continued to see my children regularly until she entered into a relationship with another man. At that point she began denying me visitations with my children. I repeatedly contacted her about seeing my children and eventually she filed a harassment complaint against me because of it. She filed for a protective order against me using false information and included my children in it. She has manipulated the legal system and used it to essentially kidnap my children legally. I have been representing myself Pro Si for the past year and its going nowhere except in circles. When I get before the Judge and explain the situation he tells me I need to file a report with the police. When I get to the police station to file a report they tell me I have to go before a judge. Whenever I tell one that I was sent there by the other they simply say "You need to get a lawyer". Apparently police officers cant enforce the law and judges cant uphold justice unless there is a lawyer there holding their hand and walking them through the process. I love and miss my children very much and I was always there for them until my wife tried shutting me out of their lives. My childrens safety has been compromised on several occasions since they have had their father ripped out of their lives. We need someone knowledgeable in Illinois civil law who can help us protect our right to be a family even if my relationship with their mother didn't work out. I have filed for a divorce myself and now need this fraudulent protective order to be modified so that it does not include my children. I hate having to ask for help like this, but at this point I honestly have nowhere else to turn. Anything you can do, anything at all, no matter how small, would be GREATLY appreciated. Even its just forwarding this to a friend who may be in a better position to offer assistance. If you have never experienced the loss of a close loved one then please, PLEASE, dont make the mistake of taking anyone you love for granted. Cherish every laugh, every smile, every experience that you get to share with them. Thanks for your time, and I hope you and your family have the Happiest of Holidays!
Canden, Kenzie, and Luke
