DYFS Case Dismissed Somerset County NJ

The DCP&P defense team at our firm achieved another great outcome on behalf of a client in Somerset County: dismissal of a Care and Supervision Complaint filed by the Division.  Our client had been involved with DCP&P for the past three months and the Division had been asking for the family to comply with a multitude of evaluations and services.  But our client, as many good parents know, was tending to her family while also maintaining a full-time job.  The fact of the matter was that she did not have time to jump through every hoop presented by the Division and, to boot, her children were receiving excellent care.  However, DCP&P was not satisfied with our client’s efforts and they decided to file a Verified Complaint for Care and Supervision, seeking to make my client’s children wards of the court and requiring our client to appear in court on a periodic basis to monitor the case.  Fortunately for our client, we appeared in court and ultimately prevailed in having the case dismissed on the same date.  Now our client does not have to deal with the inconvenience of litigation while also caring for her family.

Care and supervision litigation in New Jersey is one of the many types of court cases that DCP&P can file against parents.  Unlike Title 9 child abuse and neglect litigation, Title 30 focuses not so much on whether or not a parent perpetrated harm to the child but more so on the general well-being of the children.  That is, pursuant to N.J.S.A. 30:4C-12, whenever it shall appear that the parent or parents, guardian, or person having custody and control of any child within this State is unfit to be entrusted with the care and education of such child, or shall fail to provide such child with proper protection, maintenance and education, or shall fail to ensure the health and safety of the child, or is endangering the welfare of such child, a written complaint may be filed to ensure the health and safety of the child in the Family Part of the Chancery Division of the Superior Court in the county where the child resides for an order making the child a ward of the court and placing the child under the care and supervision or custody of the Division.

In our client’s recent case, the Court agreed that care and supervision was not necessary to ensure the best interests of the children and, accordingly, the Court dismissed the Division’s complaint.
