New Jersey DCPP/DYFS Defense Lawyers

The Department of Child Protection and Permanency (DCPP), formerly known as the Department of Youth And Family Services (DYFS), investigates allegations of child abuse and neglect. If you are facing an investigation by DCPP for suspected abuse or neglect, you need to take the investigation very seriously.

You should secure the representation of a criminal defense attorney who is familiar with dealing with the DCPP and who can help make sure that your side of the story is heard and that your rights and your family are protected against an unnecessary disruption.

DCPP investigations can begin with reports of abuse or neglect from mandatory reporters like teachers or school nurses. Actions following these investigations can include:

  • Removal of children from your home
  • Mandatory supervision
  • Home visits
  • Counseling
  • Psychological evaluations
  • Criminal prosecutions

No one should try and deal with the DCPP without an experienced guide and effective advocate helping them. It is all too easy to make a mistake that could cost you your family or end with you facing criminal charges.
