New Jersey Attorneys Handling Matters Involving DYFS (DCPP)

The Division of Youth and Family Services (DYFS), now known as the Division of Child Protection and Permanency (DCPP) is the New Jersey agency designed to protect the safety and welfare of children. The agency is responsible for investigating domestic abuse and neglect accusations and then reporting any evidence of child abuse to the county prosecutor’s office. DCPP itself cannot make an arrest or file a criminal charge, but it can intervene to separate children from their parents.

Our family law attorneys are well-versed in child abuse and neglect, and can clearly explain your rights and vigorously advocate in your defense.

Defending Parents Against Abuse and Neglect Allegations in New Jersey

Teachers, nurses, hospital staff and other individuals are often obligated by the nature of their jobs to be mandatory reporters. This means that if they see or hear anything that leads them to believe a child is being abused or neglected, they must report this information to DCPP.

Although many mandatory reporters are genuinely concerned about the child’s welfare, such allegations may or may not be true, and children may be unfairly torn away from their parents. In the most extreme cases, DCPP may petition the court to have the children placed into foster care. Townsend, Tomaio & Newmark, L.L.C., is experienced at defending parents against abuse and neglect accusations in both litigated and non-litigated disputes.
