What should I do if my child is facing a Title IX case at their high school in Illinois? VIDEO

If your child is facing a Title IX case at their high school in Illinois, you need to take the necessary precautions before you engage with the school in any capacity. Too much is at stake. Although the Title IX Final Rule allows for a more structured and arguably equitable process than the previous guidance, you cannot assume it will be a fair process. It will require a dedicated approach for an accused student to be found not responsible.

The Title IX Final Rule also allows for a school to either address and adjudicate the case through the investigation model or a live hearing model. Each has its own pros and cons so you need to familiarize yourself with how the case will be resolved and respond to it accordingly. It is an involved in a high-stakes process. Every step through the process needs to be calculated.

An experienced attorney advisor will be your son or daughter's best ally if they're facing a Title IX case at their high school in Illinois. They should be involved as early as possible in the process to help work towards a favorable outcome.
