Need a welfare check in illinois. Have had difficulty. Is ending communication between parents( mother stops any communication between herself and father and also daughter and father communication). Is against order. Also cannot contact in case of emergency. Also has moved with child in past when communication ended.Can i ask for wefare check on child? Police have been highly resistent to even saying no in past.I dont want police tension.

He has permanent order of supervised visits once a month. He is now asking for more time.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: The current supervisor has quit over me being late and her asking for $40, but i informed her that in the order it clearly says father is responsible for payment. She has now only contacted opposing party stating that she did not quit and will continue to supervise if i pay the $40. We have been doing supervised visits for 6years now. I have never missed a visitation. What should i do? Could they hold me for contempt if I miss this one visit due to her quitting. She has not contacted me since the message, either. Should I pay her and have her hold visits until I can ask the judge for a new supervisor?
