Illinois organization to counter domestic violence

Domestic violence is a very sensitive issue for residents of Lake County, Illinois, and the rest of the United States.

Many sociologists believe that removal of children from a violent home is the initial step toward ending the cycle of violence.

To date, he owes around $18,000 in child support.
