Child Abuse and Neglect (DYFS)

When there has been a report that a child has been abused or neglected, the DYFS gets involved quickly. The report of abuse or neglect can come from any source, including anonymously. There is usually immediate action to remove child or children from the home. Parents can face the dreadful situation of having had their children removed based upon false accusations. Good parents that have loving families can encounter extremely difficult legal problems when DYFS has gotten involved and taken their children from the home. The situation can seem overwhelming; what can you do to get your children back? In many cases, it can take aggressive legal action to get the issue resolved. A Morris County divorce lawyer from Law Offices of Francesca S. Blanco, LLC, we are committed to protecting the rights of parents that have gotten accused of any type of child abuse or neglect, and now must take action to get their children returned to the home.

Defining Abuse and Neglect

There are specific types of injury or damage that the DYFS is concerned with. These include cases in which a parent injures the child, or puts the child in danger of injury or serious harm. These situations also include those in which there are allegations of sexual abuse, or when the child has been abandoned. Neglect could be alleged when it is deemed that the child was not properly supervised, was denied food, shelter, did not get needed medical treatment or care, when the child is malnourished or when it is claimed that the child failed to thrive in the home environment. As children are prone to a great number of scrapes, bruises and injuries both at home and at school, and while playing or engaging in other activities, an injury could be completely unrelated to the parent's actions.

When a child has been injured and is taken to a doctor for treatment, if the physician believes that abuse is suspected, they are required to make a report. These cases issues put good parents at great risk of losing their children for a long period of time. Once the children have been removed from the home, the process of getting them back can be extremely difficult. Immediate action should be taken and our firm has extensive experience in the process and will fight for you and zealously protect your rights as a parent.
