DCF is a complicated organization that was set up to help ensure that children were being protected. Their goal is to protect every child that they can and they take any allegations of abuse very seriously. They have a very specific process that they go through when it comes to checking out any claims that may be reported to them.
The problem is that New Jersey Department of Children and Families (DYFS) often oversteps it’s authority and mishandles its investigations. If this has happened to your family, contact a highly trained and experienced professional to help you.
Upon receiving a complaint, DCF will schedule an investigation in order to determine if there is any further action that is required. If they look into allegations and they feel as though it is an unsafe situation for the child, they will take the child from the home and place them with a foster family or with the closest living relative. If nothing is discovered at first, they will investigate further to ensure that they did not miss anything.
During a serious time like this, having the right lawyer on your side will make all of the difference in the world. Finding out that you have a DCF investigation looming is scary enough but imagine the agony and desperation that you feel if your child gets taken away from you. It is only natural to want the best tools available to you so that you fight on a level playing field for your family.

It is crucial to find a lawyer that has the experience you need during this very important battle. Knowledge is power and that is certainly the case here when it comes to battling against DCF.

They only want the best for your child and they will fight for what they think is right. That is why you need to be prepared with a professional that knows the system inside and out.

Although New Jersey Department of Children and Families (formerly the Division of Youth and Family Services) is an admirable agency, it can be one of the most complicated to understand and to navigate. If you find yourself involved with DCF NJ, contact The Williams Law Group for legal assistance. After reviewing your file, we will make the best determination of how to proceed and keep you informed every step of the way.
The Family Division is complex, and unfortunately it is not uncommon to have judges in FM, FD, or FV matters review DCPP records, allow counsel – and not the parties – to review the information in court, not possess a copy of it, not show the record to the client – and then rely upon some or all of the DCPP unvetted findings in making determinations regarding custody and parenting time.
The Williams Law Group is all too aware of this situation and to this end, we guarantee that our clients receive copies of all pertinent records. Our priority is to achieve the best possible outcome and we prepare in advance in order to not allow unvetted findings to enter into the determination factor for our clients. We give our clients access to DCPP records in order to use, absorb, digest and discredit agency investigative findings. We do not want you handicapped in protecting your children simply by virtue of the court’s overtaking that responsibility.
Notwithstanding the compulsory language of the statutory exceptions to confidentiality, DCPP routinely objects to disclosure of these records, necessitating seeking a court order. The Williams Law Group diligently files this order and thus, if an expert conducts an evaluation, compiles third-party hearsay statements from collateral contacts and otherwise gathers discovery – information to be used at trial – our office obtains a copy well before the trial date.
The Williams Law Group fights for child welfare and advocacy. We stand behind the clients we represent and construct the best possible DCF (DCPP) strategy for their particular situation. Our goal is to achieve a successful outcome for child, parent, and family. Contact us at 908-810-1083.
