Cooperating with DYFS in New Jersey
To ensure that children are protected from abuse and neglect, DYFS has the right to do what they have to do. While this, at times, means that the child is removed from the home and put into foster care, that is not always the case. Often times, DYFS is required to work with the parents to develop a safety plan since the parents have the right to change their actions and behaviors to make the home a safe environment for the child.
If the parent doesn’t adhere to the safety plan and does not make changes, then DYFS can take alternative actions. In another blog on our site, we had written about how sometimes DYFS might not be “helping” you out, but when it comes to these efforts, they are legally required to to work with the parents to ensure the child stays in at home.
