What To Expect in a New Jersey DODD Hearing

In New Jersey, if the DCPP has investigated an allegation which stated that you have abused or neglected your child, and has discovered that your child is at an “imminent risk of harm,” the DCPP can remove the child from your home right away without a court order. This is what is known as a DODD removal, and once this removal occurs, the DCPP must be before a judge within two court days to ratify, or approve, the DODD.
