In the state of New Jersey, the Division of Child Protection and Permanency (DCP&P) — formerly known as the Division of Youth and Family Services (DYFS) — handles issues that arise in the care of children, including alleged neglect, abuse or dangerous living conditions.
Advocacy For Parents In New Jersey DCP&P & DYFS Matters
While the department does valuable work in protecting children throughout the state, mistakes can be made, resulting in a good parent losing his or her parenting rights and contact with the child over a miscommunication or error. At the law offices of James T. Rosenberg, we are committed to protecting parents who face this terrifying and overwhelming possibility. Our attorneys are skilled in representing these types of cases and proving the viability of the parent in court.
Typically, the Division has a great amount of control over whether or not the parent will have contact with the child following a situation where the child was taken. The Division may order to take away parental rights, put the child in foster care or require mandatory supervision should the parent see the child. While this is largely up to the Division, there are legal steps you can take to fight for your parental rights.
Our attorneys will advocate on your behalf throughout that process, navigating the various requirements, documentation and hearings before judges and the Division. We will thoroughly investigate the allegations and fight the claims against you, showing the progress you have made as a parent and the important role you play in your child’s life.
