New Jersey Department Of Children And Family Services

When a doctor or teacher senses that a child may be in danger at home either via neglect or abuse, they are required to alert the Division of Youth and Family Services (DYFS), now referred to as the Department of Children and Families (DCF). Shortly following these accusations, DCF personnel will perform an intense investigation that could ultimately result in losing custody of your children.

This is a scary time for a parent. As children age, they are likely to misinterpret your actions or fabricate issues as they experiment with the consequences of their actions. When taken too far, however, the results can be devastating. This is a highly complicated area of law, and it requires the experience of a knowledgeable attorney.

At Cipriano Law Offices, P.C., our lawyers have more than 50 years of experience working with parents and their children after they have become involved in the New Jersey Department of Children and Families. We can help you remove the DCF from your life so you can return to more important things, like raising your children.
