Taking Good Care of Yourself While Battling False Allegations

When life gets stressful, most of us tuck into a defense crouch: we tend to abandon or curtail routines, habits and behaviors that normally nurture us. For instance, maybe you typically eat a healthy, low sugar “real foods” diet; however, since the allegations, you’ve been binge eating Cheetos and Little Debbie snack cakes and watching way too much TV. It’s tempting, given what you’re facing, to...

You face no shortages of technical and legal challenges, as someone who stands falsely accused of abusing or neglecting your children. To make headway and to prevent other aspects of your life from going off the rails, you need to think strategically. Restoring your confidence, repairing your family and strengthening your relationships requires more than just winning your case; you must address...

Should You Settle to Avoid a Trial on False Abuse Allegations?

In much the same way that a criminal can agree to a plea deal to avoid a lengthy trial, someone accused of abuse or neglect in New Jersey can “stipulate” to an allegation to avoid the hassle of a fact finding hearing and trial. However, unlike a plea deal in a criminal case, this kind of settlement generally offers the accused parent very little in the way of benefits. You might be able to avoid...

On the Understandable Urge to Want to “Cooperate” with DCPP

Most of us have a strong, innate sense of what’s just. We want to believe that the agencies and institutions that regulate family life in New Jersey, for all intents and purposes, share these fundamental notions.   As someone who stands falsely accused of abuse or neglect — or who faces grossly exaggerated charges along those lines — you want to believe that you can trust the...

The Division Wants to “Help” During the Trial? [Be Skeptical]

As your Title 9 case progresses, the division may ask the court to ask to compel you to accept certain “services,” ostensibly to help you, psychologically and otherwise. This offer can be quite the Trojan Horse, however. First of all, unless the court finds that you did engage in abusive or neglectful acts, it can’t “order services” for you, unless you consent. However, the court can order...

Child Abuse in New Jersey may soon be redefined

On March 11, 2013, the New Jersey Law Revision Commission issued its draft report and recommendations for changes to the two statutes in New Jersey that govern the law of child abuse and neglect – namely, Title 9 and Title 30. The public comment period is nearing conclusion. For anyone who is interested in this area of law, it is vital that you review the Commission’s draft report....

The Importance of Appealing a DYFS/DCPP Substantiation of Abuse/Neglect

If the Division of Child Protection and Permanency substantiates an allegation of child abuse or neglect, the perpetrator’s name is listed on the Child Abuse Central Registry. N.J.S.A. 9:6-8.11. This is a confidential list that is maintained by the Department of Children and Families. Only a limited number of agencies have a statutory right to access the Registry, including licensed...

What is a Dodd Removal?

When DCPP, the Division of Child Protection and Permanency (formerly, DYFS, the Division of Youth and Family Services) investigates an allegation of child abuse or neglect, and uncovers what it believes to be “imminent risk of harm”, the Division may remove the children from the home immediately without a court order. N.J.S.A. 9:6-8.28. This removal is referred to as a...

DCPP Court: Desperately Seeking Logic

In the world of child protection, judges are often inclined to “err on the side of caution” when faced with requests for parenting time. Almost universally, parents are required to be supervised when the litigation commences. As the case proceeds, that supervision is often lessened to the point of allowing unsupervised time leading into reunification. But how often do we truly...
