What Is DYFS?
The Division of Youth and Family Services is a child welfare agency that
is devoted to ensuring the safety and well-being of children all throughout
New Jersey. When abuse or neglect claims are made, it is DYFS that is
assigned to investigate further into the allegations and to have a safer
child custody arrangement put into effect whenever necessary. In cases
where they find the child has been harmed or is at risk of being hurt,
then the children are moved into foster care or alternative residential
placement to ensure their safety.
This is what you need to know:
- The foster home system in New Jersey is made up of families and individuals
who have completed a comprehensive licensing program and have been deemed
fit to properly care for a child for a designated period of time.
- If the court finds that it will never be safe for the child to return home,
then the court will begin making arrangements to begin the adoption process
to find the child a more permanent home.

We understand the fear and desperation that parents can feel when they
have had their children taken away from them. Our caring legal team is
here to act as your support and assertive legal advocates during this
difficult time. We understand how the DYFS agents work and operate in
New Jersey and we stand ready to help clear your name of any allegations.
