The Family Preservation Project (FPP) protects the legal rights of parents while saving the state thousands of dollars spent on private counsel and long stays in foster care. RILS provides representation in those instances where the Public Defender cannot represent more than one parent as a result of a conflict of interest. The goal of the FPP attorneys is to ensure that low-income parents in danger of loosing their children to state custody receive proper representation in the Family Court. Our attorneys represent clients with a philosophy that supports family reunification or preservation when possible and requires the state to make all reasonable efforts to support this goal prior to placing children in foster care.
