New Jersey Department of Child Protection And Permanency
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 Department of Child Protection and Permanency (DCPP). Shortly following these accusations, DCPP 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 decades 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 DCPP from your life, so you can return to more important things, like raising your children.
