NJ Attorneys Helping You Navigate DCPP

The Division of Youth and Family Services (DYFS) is an agency of the State of New Jersey.  Its purpose is to protect and promote the welfare of children.  When allegations of abuse or neglect of a child are made, DYFS has the authority to investigate the allegations.

Upon finding sufficient evidence of abuse or neglect, DYFS can seek an Order from a Superior Court Judge permitting various forms of intervention designed to protect the children from further abuse or neglect.  Less serious forms of intervention may include a requirement that one or both parents undergo psychological treatment or substance abuse counseling. Far more serious forms may include a removal of the child from his or her home and the placement of the child in foster care.

Given the complexities of New Jersey’s DCPP, we advise you to contact one of our experienced family law attorneys at 973-627-7300 at Einhorn Barbarito today. We handle family law issues throughout New Jersey.
