Caden, Mckenzie, and Luke Sarakinis are uniting with family and friends 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 began seeing someone else and started denying me visitations. I repeatedly contacted her about seeing the kids and eventually she filed a harassment complaint against me because of it. She then filed for a protective order against me using false information and included the children in it so that I would not be able to see them. 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". 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 children’s safety has been compromised on several occasions. I received a call saying my daughter had been molested, and that my wife had been reported to Child Protective Services for neglect. My wife suffers from mental health and drug dependency issues. We need someone who is knowledgeable in Illinois civil law that 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 and now need this fraudulent protective order modified so that it does not include my children, otherwise it will affect the judges ability to grant me at least visitations with them.
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, or saying a prayer for my family. If you have never experienced the loss of a close loved one then please, PLEASE, don’t 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!
C J, K M, and Luke
