Helping clients facing DYFS actions
In New Jersey, the Division of Youth and Family Services (D.Y.F.S.), also known as the Department of Child Protection & Permanency (D.C.P.&P.) is a government agency dedicated to resolving issues related to a child’s wellbeing. These matters can involve issues with biological parents, adoptive families, foster care, and other protective services. The system’s intention is to protect children from harmful situations. Unfortunately, D.C.P.&P. is not a flawless organization. In some situations, DYFS will take actions against parents that are unfounded. Because they are mandated to assess all matters when complaints are filed, DYFS will conduct an intrusive investigation every time. Sadly, even a difference of opinion in parenting styles can lead to a probe into the life of your family. When facing DYFS actions, it is important to have quality legal support to protect your family and the future of your familial relationships. The Law Offices of George J. Mardinly handles all DCPP matters for New Jersey clients. Our firm understands how high the stakes are. We will zealously represent the rights and interests of your family.
