Experienced New Jersey DYFS Lawyers

The Division of Youth and Family Services, also known as DYFS, monitors and delegates family law cases when child abuse and neglect is involved. If you are facing a DYFS action in the state of New Jersey, you are at risk of losing your parental rights and custody. Don't let DYFS intervene into your life and risk losing your children to foster care. The experienced, professional attorneys from the Law Offices of Jef Henninger can help protect you, your rights and your children. Give us a call today to speak with one of our lawyers to start developing a plan of action towards a desired solution.

Did you know that anything said to DYFS can be used against you in a court of law? Having legal representation reduces the chances of DYFS sending your statements to local law enforcement to convict you. If you want to understand your case better and get tough, smart attorneys on your side, we do provide a free consultation.

Call us anytime day or night 855-953-3529

How does a NJ DYFS investigation start?

DYFS may receive a tip from a family member, the other parent, school teacher, nurse or someone from church or a sports team. The tip may well be unjustified and may not truly represent an event or situation as they perceived it to be. It may be 100% fabricated during a nasty divorce or support battle. Or it might be that a child is in danger and an official investigation prevents a bad situation from become worse. DYFS workers have no way to know until they investigate. Unfortunately during a DYFS investigation facts can become twisted and what wasn't originally questioned, now is.

The safest way to handle DYFS is through the services of an experienced DYFS / DCPP Lawyer. The Law Offices of Jef Henninger regularly closes out DYFS cases for their clients.
