What is a Preliminary Hearing?

In a preliminary hearing, judges will decide whether or not DYFS should continue with the case, as well as if the child should live at home while the case continues. If there are satisfactory supervisions, or the abusive parent leaves the home, the judge may allow the child to stay at home. During this time, the judge may also order certain services such as psychological evaluations, substance abuse testing or treatment, or domestic violence services. Over time, these service providers will provide reports to the court with recommendations.
