Asked by user in Illinois.
My neighbor has been filing false reports with DCFS. He also plays his music at 6:00 a.m. every morning. How can I get legal help?
I’m sorry you’re having trouble with your neighbor.
False reporting is usually classified as a low level misdemeanor. As for the noise issues, I would recommend writing a letter to your landlord explaining the issue and asking your landlord to take steps to ensure that the tenant is not unreasonably loud.
If you decide you want to pursue a legal claim, I would recommend contacting the Illinois State Bar Lawyer Referral Service. The operators will ask you about the issues you’re experiencing and connect you with an attorney who can help.
