Client was accused of abusing prescription drugs, specifically Oxycodone. The DYFS /DCPP case worker wanted her to attend inpatient treatment but the client refused. As a result, they filed a complaint against her. Luckily, we were able to go to the first court appearance. We made sure that DYFS did not move to take the children. Furthermore, we were able to prevent the Court from ordering that the client attend inpatient treatment. At the second court appearance, we were able to get the supervised visitation requirement lifted. At the third court appearance, we were able to get the entire case dismissed without having to go through a fact finding hearing.
This case is a good example of what happens when you hire a lawyer right away and you follow that lawyer’s advice. Instead of having about a dozen court appearances over a years time, this matter was resolved in a few months with just three court appearances.
