Sexual Assault and DYFS in New Jersey
Sexual assault in New Jersey is also known as rape. New Jersey defines sexual assault as the penetration of a victim by physical force or coercion, or if the victim has been physically or mentally incapacitated.

This also included the use and insertion of the hand, finger, or object into the anus or vagina either by the defendant or their instruction.

FAQ – do I need a lawyer to help me with my DYFS / DCPP case or investigation?
This is another question that gets asked all the time when people call me. My answer is always yes. I make it a point to emphasize that I’m not trying to twist their arm and tell them that they need to hire us but I always say they need to hire someone. Dealing with any legal situation on your own is crazy. Of course, many people have handled a wide variety of situations on their own and everything turned out great. Thus, some people think that they can handle everything without an attorney. This is like a game of Russian roulette. While some people may win, some people will lose and they will lose big. There is no reason to risk it. If all you have is an out of court DYFS investigation, the cost for the attorney will be minimal. Call us anytime, day or night to speak with one of our NJ DYFS defense lawyers.
