Morris County Lawyer Sara Sencer McArdle worked for 10 years, as the head of the Child Abuse Division. She is uniquely qualified to handle your family’s DCPP matter.
The Division of Youth and Family Services (DYFS) or Department of Children Protection and Permanency (DCPP) in New Jersey intervenes in family issues involving allegations of child neglect and child abuse. In extreme cases, the Division may petition parents to participate in counseling, parenting classes, and substance abuse treatment and children can even be placed into foster care, that is why it is important to have an experienced Morris County Lawyers on your side.
The DCPP is typically called upon to intervene based upon information given by a teacher, school, nurse, hospital, or other mandatory reporter. These mandatory reporters are required to report signs of child abuse and child neglect to DCPP. While some people may be well intentioned, these allegations can tear children away from their parents. If you are a parent or a relative who is concerned about a child, you should know there are options available to you and you should speak with our experienced Morris County lawyers. If you are a relative, you may be able to obtain temporary placement care of the children. We will fight for you and your family!
