DYFS Insanity in New Jersey

The Appellate Court in an unreported decision recently upheld a judgment that terminated a defendant mother’s parental rights to three of her children and that granted guardianship of the three children to the plaintiff Division of Youth and Family Services affirmed. The three children never lived with their mother. The Appellate Cound held that the trial court in making its judgment was justified in considering the mother’s “long-term history” with DYFS, which included the loss of her parental rights to nine other children (!) and properly concluded that the mother’s capacity to parent had not improved materially, that DYFS had provided “significant” services to her to no avail, and that the best interests of the three children required the entry of the judgment.

Okaaaaay.

How does one begin to dissect this case?

Well the good news is we have now established the nine strikes and you're out rule in New Jersey when it comes to terminating parental rights. As you might imagine its pretty hard to take away someone's kids. You pretty much have light them on fire before a court will take them away permanently. If you just get caught standing over your gasoline soaked kids with a lighted match, then your OK. Parent of the year material. However, now we know that if you somehow manage to lose nine kids -- nine! -- you're pretty much going to lose any others you have. This appeal looks like a huge waste of time and judicial resources.

The bad news is there are now 12 kids that my taxes are paying to support and their fates are now in the hands of DYFS which seems like it manages to kill a kid every other month. It's also a good bet that the mother's appeal was funded by Legal Services or a similar program which is funded by, who else, taxpayers. How can this woman be allowed to reproduce? Since the decision is unreported and I didn't read the full text of the decision, I am going to go out on a limb and guess the mother is probably a drug addict. Substance abuse is a factor in the majority of DYFS cases, as high as 80-90% of the cases. You would think that after losing nine kids due to drug addication there would be some justification to say "no more" without violating the Constitution. Once again I can't recommend my favorite charity Project Prevention enough. There's chapters in Newark and Atlantic City. Give'em some scratch. Maybe in the long run it might lower your taxes if the State ins't warehousing as many crack babies, badly, and the state legislature doesn't figure out some new way to waste money. Oh, wait never mind. New Jersey not waste as much money as possible -- like that will ever happen.

Acquaintances of Kid Various will know that he thinks that it is way, WAY too difficult for the State to take away people's kids.

Lots of kids need to be taken away from their defective parents. As far as the Kid is concerned, DYFS should be looking at you askance if you don't get your kids the right footwear (addidas or whatever the kids are wearing now) or their GIANT FUCKING PANTS.

Kid Various does not mind his tax dollars going to taking kids out of bad environments. The problem is that DYFS takes the kids and puts them in a foster home managed by people just slightly less maladjusted than the freaks they got taken away from.

The Kid thinks it would be much more beneficial tax-wise if we just collected these kids and housed them in large scale orphanages where they would be trained, like the spartan youth of old, in the martial arts and fanatical loyalty to the State.

We need more Super-Soldiers to fight for us in distant corners of the globe.

DYFS does not ONLY take kids away from maladjusted families but from normal ones as well. Remember, nothing's better to someone than a free baby, no matter where and who it comes from.

Well DYFS took my boy friends 2 children five years ago and as of now he has spent thousands of dollars and he has done everything the courts and DYFS has ask of him.He was told if all the things were done, he could have his kids....well again DYFS doesnt keep there word. When we went to court two days ago I am now added to the no contact order. They can't justifie why we are not allowed contact and haven't seen or talked to the kids in a year now . Where is the justice for the inocent parent that only wants to love and provide for his children?Some one needs to wake up DYFS and maybe it will be us to do it so keep your eyes on the newspapers.the truth is gonna come to light before jan.10th 2005

DYFS is run by a collection of self-serving, protecting their own job idiots. It is an outrage that an organization as inept as DYFS is allowed to waste tax payers money. Morons like DAVY and Cotton are gone. Managers like Kathy way have been demoted. Unless there is a purge at DYFS of managers and union workers the situation will never improve becuase there is no accountability. "Everybody is just doing their job"...they should add "and doing it very poorly"

Most of the time when DYFS removes children they place them with relatives, who until recently didn't go through the same screening process as resource parents. Many times they are just as screwed up as the biological parents.
In my personal experience I have dealt with two types of DYFS employees, the dedicated and the incompetant. Guess which one floats to the top?
For the past six months, I have heard all kinds of garbage about how I should not hate my foster son's biological mother, who is currently appealing the termination of her rights and holding up Little C's adoption. She has been addicted to drugs since she was teenager (She is about 40.). I am supposed to honor a woman who was caught driving while intoxicated with her eight month old son crawling around loose in her backseat.
Since then he was bounced from foster home to foster home- 10 in 2 years, he was mislabled with all sorts of diseases and illnesses that he never had, while she was given opportunity after opportunity to get sober and clean and help for her mental health issues. In the six months, he has been with us he has thrived and has been given more stability and love than he has ever known before.
Many of the foster parents I have met have had IQs slightly higher than moldy cheese, but others like myself and my husband are educated professionals who want to adopt our foster son, who had been warehoused at one point at a daycare center in our town.
His sucess is a testement to his resiliance and our love, not to that waste of DNA that has three other children.

DYFS is a very corrupted organization there are parents who cleaned there act up that has suffered some unfortunate circumstances but then you have the bias case-worker who basicaly thinks guilty instead of there might be some truth. Who made them fucking case workers exempt from getting thrown into jail for lieing to make the case look good in court. They are expert liars! They make a ruff draft in the house then go back to the job and rewrite the report for the court. Then it becomes a game played with the court system and the family that has been accused while DYFS manipulate and lie with corrupted employees. Remember people love to adopt babies the lighter the baby the faster they get adopted.

After a horrible sexual assualt DYFS took my children, because I suffered from Post Tramatic Stress Disorder. DYFS has split them up and almost destroyed my family, but for the grace of God. I have never been an addict, or substance abuser. I have never been abusive or destructive. I was hurt and DYFS decided to punish a woman who was a victim of domestic violence even more. After taking my children they put me up for child support and demanded over $760 monthly. In addition, I still have to support my children by providing what they need. I have had the promise of them coming home for months. Our government has a system of check and balance, but DYFS is a lone rogue.

I have been reading some of the posts here regarding DYFS. I must say that I agree with the person posting regarding the "waste of DNA". We are foster parents of a little guy that came to us having been neglected and abused by his mother and having never seen the father. He is thriving and has grown - we are willing to adpot him but DYFS seems to want to the biological family because of DNA. The father is uninvolved - the mother is on welfare but hey they can provide a biological home. Since when have we decided that holding "parents" to a lower standard is acceptable

Not all parents deserve to lose their children. DFYS along with the whole court supported system is totally screwed up. I have seen model parents lose their children for giving a kid a time out. All it takes is a mean spirited person or disgruntled, cruel idiot, or a spoiled psychotic kid to make a call and DYFS is quick to wrench the children from loving parents, and have the police file child abuse charges. DYFS is well known to be over zealous and excessive in their actions. DYFS is a total dis-service to children and families.
The family part court is so inundated that it treats DYFS cases like traffic tickets. Parents have no say, no rights, no opportunity to speak unless they can muster up thousands of dollars to hire legal help and pay to prove they are innocent. Some go to jail and their lives are over. Leaving more dependants for the state of NJ. This causes a huge waste of time, tax dollars and undue hardship and heartbreak to families and someday someone will prove DYFS and the current court system does more harm to children, families and the community at large. Yes there may be many real bad parents. But for those who lose their children based on flimsy accusations, hearsay, lack of qualified representation, and an overworked under skilled DFYS agents is a terrible travesty. If kids are determined to be in danger remove them but not without immediate attempts to look deeply into a situation and aid the parents and support and prioritizing action to maintain a whole healthy family before throwing good hard working people and great parents into kangaroo court, conduct witch hunts, and sending innocent parents into a worse Hudson County correctional facility. The system needs immediate reform and an ethics review through and through.
It is an embarrassment to all of New Jersey and all of this country.

what to say? What to say? I have lived such a horrible and unrelenting nightmare. And that's not the worst part. It is the lifelong nightmare my children will have to live because of DYFS's actions. I am a mother of 4, my first three were removed from my care after I kicked my husband out of my house due to his continuos drug and alcohol addiction. His mother sho was angered at the fact that their "PERFECT" (ha! Ha!) family was now tarnished she called DYFS on me and my three children were removed from my home after I said some very nasty things to the case worker asigned to my case. The very next day accompanied by my mother-in-law my children were not only removed but separated and dealt out like a deck of cards to what ever family member could be manipulated by DYFS to do as they were told.

Then after they terminated my parental rights and I was trying to live my life as sanlily as I colud my boyfriend and I became pregnat with our baby. Only to our surprise my x-mother-in-law had been keeping tabs on us and called the case worker that took my first three children away and here she comes..... She just took my new baby girl without a court order, stating that she was in immenet danger. She is now almost 8 months old and we know what that means in NJ when we hit the 12 month mark they can again terminate my parental rights and find someone to adopte her. I have spent 150,000 dollars in the last 4 years in legal fees and nothing can fidght this corrupt organization and the peop;e it employes.

My sugesstion to any one that get that "knock" on their door.....DO NOT ANSWER AND MOVE THE HECK OUT OF THE COUNTRY ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Little that we knew such a retarded law exist in corrupted hudson county new jersey. I I knew what I know now. That low life would've have no right to make me sign papers and threaten us with our children. Guess what? She is a drug dealer. The director of the hudson county office knows my parents. She made up these disgusting lies about me. Why? Well, I messed up with her silly little low crap business. So she's like "dont you dare mess up with my income " I've got a son"! I need to pay my rent and eat. You know I found out fifteen people of the Dyfs of Secaucus does cocaine. They have the nerve to come to my door or to any door and remove children for something they love to do. You see these dyfs workers are addicts. We responsible parents are not. We no how to enjoy the good life. Show our children the beautiful things in life with cash money hardworking money. Not money from the state or welfare. This low lifes name is Jay Robalino Diaz and her supervisor at the time was the pot head Lenny Martinez. Anybody outthere find out the director of dyfs the son of a low life "drugee"

DYFS is like a big machine that removes kids from deplorable circumstances on one end, generates income for DYFS workers and service providers in the middle, then spits the kids back out into the same deplorable circumstances. I'm told this is all due to antiquated statutory law, which treats children as the parents' possessions. Until a kid is three, he is not considered by DYFS to be human and will therefore not be harmed by any of this, no matter where he winds up - even if it's with his drugaddictdrunkenprostitutethiefsoulesssociopathic mother. Then, some fifteen years hence, he is turned out into the streets to wreak havoc on society, make a baby (or two or nine), and DYFS has a built-in thriving money machine. You can bet we are all paying for it, one way or another. How do we stop the madness?

DYFS and the courts are also supposed to consider the child's best interests and find him a secure and loving home, instead of throwing him back to a bleak future, but I suspect that would begin to break the cycle and therefore not generate enough income for the state.

Dyfs is the most corrupt agency I ever known about. I used to beleive in the court system until my husbands children were basically stolen from him by his family members with the help of certainDyfs workers and their lies. I'm not sure what his mothers problem was with him other than knowing she screwed up raising her own children and maybe wanted another chance and figured she could get it raising his son. It is not that his family was worried about the best interest of the boys. Because the older son was a daddys boy and it has been a little over two years now he is still wanting to see his father and wondering why he has not seen him and making him fathers day cards. The older boy being raised by his grandmom that was abusive to her own children making them all turn out to be addicts and raising them with an alcoholic father and being frustrated herself and taking it out on them. Now the same woman is raising the stolen boy with yet another alcoholic but this time it would be, now get this, the mother of two older children that belong to the same man that fathered the boys. My guess was she always wanted a son so she would get one even if it meant taking her ex's. Someone she always lied to that they were such good friends. She was never his friend, maybe his mothers friend and the mother of his children.What I don't understand is in the beginning of all the court procedings his mother told me that the kids would be better off living with us that out of his three woman that I was the best mother. Probably cause she knew I did not use drugs and did not drink. And before the younger child was even born the lesbian sister now raising him already had decided she needed a baby and plotted on how to involve Dyfs to help so she and her lebian lover could get a baby. She had planned the whole thing and made the call to DYFS. These people used his older daughter by sending her around to get any information from her father that they could give Dyfs to help them. He was doing everything the courts asked for. Dyfs never came to our home in the year the case was going on. We found out later that they were susposed to be doing monthly checks. Maybe if someone did their job right they would of seen that we lived a normal happy life. Married, renting apt saving for a house, running a business, eatting dinner together every night, watching tv at night, going to school functions, camping etc. Plenty of food in the house. No drugs, no drinking, no partying, nothing out the ordinany, family outtings, family holidays, But Dyfs and his family did not want to see this. Always finding ways to make him look bad to the Judge. Using info from the daughter. She would find out when he was working out at sae for sometimes 10 days straight and the family would get dates changed so he would not be able to make it to court. That is what happened the day his rights where terminated. They fould out he was at sea and lied he was notified and made it look like he just did not show up for court. On a Friday the case worker shows up at our door, hands a 15 year old papers and leaves. In these paper it says the court date was changed to that Monday, well they already knew he was not going to be there . They knew he was working at sea and not going to be home until that Wed. or Thurs. But the case worker says in the court papers she hand delivered them to him. It's funny though, this same 15 year old was not able to sign for an appliance to be delivered but she was able to accept paper that would give a life sentence to three human beings. This case was so corrupt that thing were coming out that they were having a hard time hiding and the case was about to be sent to another county.Even after his rights were terminated, the public defender never contacted him to tell him anything. We contacted the public defender to see what was going on and find out about court and he sends a letter saying the rights were terminated. We called a Lawyer and went to see her the day we got the letter and it was a few days after the time they give you to appeal. All this was planned. People that cant afford a Lawyer and used a court appointed public defender have a 0 % chance to get there kids back. All other people have maybe a 1% chance. In Cape May county no one gets their kids back. Well now because nobody cared about the best interest of the children they are being raised in the same enviroments that they where orininally taken out of. With drugs, alcohol, partying, being lied to that their father who is only a few miles away is either dead or on drugs, which neither is true. These children are going to grow up resenting someone and having plenty of problems. The father took care of his problem but the people raising the children did not have to because Dyfs never checked them out well enough to find out they themselves had the same problems as the father and mother. So now the father is clean of drugs and has been since all this was going on but the children are now living with alcoholics, cocaine users, potheads, partyers, people who consider feeding you children lunch by putting a can of tuna on the table before going out to drink. But no bread in the house. Being raised by a sexoholic with mental conditions in hospital for attempted suicide, drug dealers. All this is OK with DYFS because they are not concerned with the welfare of children. They are out to keep the cycle going so the money keeps coming in and the public defenders can have clients they don't have to really do anything for. DYFS worrys about winning in court not the children. The only people I can say seemed concerned about the childrens best interest was this panel of people that we had a meeting with, they seen us, talked to us, listened. They said just do what the court asked. I wonder if they know their advice means nothing. Well there isn't a day that the boys aren't in our thoughts or conversations. Everyday my husband dies a little more and it worrys me sometimes. I have to be there as his best friend to keep him strong and clean. All this is enough to make someone who has never done drug do drugs. When his heart is breaking so bad and he is crying at night there is really nothing for me to say.I just put my hand on him. Everyday is a struggle to keep him strong and have hope that someday he will have relationships with all his children. Each week in Church I know what is in his prayers. I can see it. So everyday we just try our best to live with what the system did and it was not a good decision. My husband is actually a better father than I had ever known. Through the years we have been friends I always knew he was an wonderful partner to the women he was with but it wasn't until recently I found out how great of a father he is.

To the previous comment, I think you left out a good part of the story. It usually takes 12-15 months of litigation before a case gets to guardianship. Court hearings to terminate parental rights are scheduled months in advance and unless you missed two court dates in a row (the first being a default and the second being a proof hearing) or you missed a pre scheduled trial, terminating parental rights is not as easy as you make it sound. Furthermore, if your husband was truly out at sea, and the court date was changed at the last second as you claim, you could have contacted the courts to have the matter adjourned.

DYFS in NJ is completely out of control. In Warren County there is the continuing problem of caseworkers twisting words and downright lying and making things up. They cancel court dates and every time you comply, they come up with something else that needs to be complied with to drag out your case as long as possible. These people get bonuses from the state which gets money from the federal government each time they take a child away. There's talk of a protest up here in Washington NJ.

New Jersey's Division of Youth and Family Services, contrary to the belief of many posting here, has better things to do with their time than randomly selecting families to screw with. DYFS needs a referral to even put you on their radar, and then, as another poster noted, the statutes require certain timeframes before anything can be done. 12 months is the minimum amount of time that can elapse before parental rights are terminated, unless the parents have had their parental rights terminated to other children, in which case it can go somewhat quicker.

As for the system somehow set to screw the parents, the state provides an attorney for their kids, to advocate for their wishes, if articulable, or their interests if not. In addition, the state usually provides an attorney for each parent. Add to that the attorney for the state, and the judge, and the law clerks and courts personnel, and before you even get to the DYFS staff, you are looking at six state paid JD's and various support staff, just to proceed with the litigation. Given that a good 85% of DYFS cases result in reunification (if the kids were ever taken in the first place, as often DYFS just pays for services and provides welfare assistance), relatively few go all the way to termination of parental rights. Once it reaches that point, the burden of proof lies with DYFS, at a heightened level, because the right to screw up your kids has constitutional implications. If DYFS manages to win, the parents will appeal, drawing into the equation a new attorney for each party for the appellate work, as well as a three judge appellate court panel, raising the number of state paid for JD's from six to thirteen. In addition to the expense, the entire process takes years, tying up court resources as well as other state resources. However, protecting children from neglect and abuse has no price and is worth it.

For those mental midgets who think that the state makes money off selling these "free babies", you probably also think that Bush was behind 9/11 and FDR knew about Pearl Harbor before the Japanese attacked.

A final note. It is exceedingly easy for people to bitch on a website about how they were wronged. Especially when their casefiles are sealed and cannot be accessed. Makes it easy to claim that they complied with all DYFS provided services (and note how they usually miss the phrase "court ordered"), because nobody who knows better is allowed to come forth and refute their whining. Try to remember that when reading these incredible sob stories. And remember also that if DYFS enters your life, you must have done something to bring them there.

For the person making accusations towards the dyfs workers out of Secacus. One would feel pretty brave to mention names when they refer themselves as "ANONYMOUS". How did your case end up? where are your kids? Bottom line is you should stop USING and keep in mind that you've become delusional, with all that stuff your putting in your system.Instead of concerning yourself with the so-called "DYFS CARTEL OUT OF SECACUS" BE A PARENT< STOP ABUSING YOUR KIDS.Remember that that "DRUG DEALER AND FAT-POTHEAD SUPERVISOR" just SAVED your Kkids life and gave them the chance you as a so-called PARENT never was or will give them.

I agree with the second to last poster;DYFS is not out there to steal your children. I am a foster parent-a direct witness to what you losers have done to your children. Biological families have a lot of lee way to improve - that you don't is shocking. The system coddles you from the moment you are on DYFS's radar. Your children have no rights but the one; a safe permanent home. In most instances DYFS gives the kids back to you losers who go and screw things up again with your kids ending up in the system again. As someone said please don't fall for the sob stories - the reason some of you did not get your children back is coz you were probably too high, too drunk or too insane to attend a court hearing. As far as I am concerned none of you should get your children back!! You screwed up - accept it. I can give your child a better life......

I hope all you idiots move to Philadelphia and try doing your job there the same way you did your job while working for dyfs in New Jersey!

The government wants your children! Why? Money! Money is why! America was never as screwed up as it is right now in 2010. An American citizen used to have rights in court to due process, a gun and the right to live the American dream. Screwed up politicians and communist organizations like dyfs have now changed the way the system works. Why don't they just take the Constitution and just burn it?

Screwed up organizations like dyfs and immigration services has now made America turn on their own people and now America is becoming a corrupt, money hungry, alien loving, communist country! Everyone move! Move to another country and take all their citizens jobs and rights away just like all the foreigners and politicians are doing to us right now!

There are some real cases of abuse and neglect of children that really need the attention of a child welfare agency. Having said that, I think it is time that DYFS is investigated by the proper authorities. Let’s clean out all these representatives who have nothing better to do than harass parents and ruin lives. As obvious by the 7-0 ruling in the New Jersey Supreme Court, DYFS needs to re-evaluate their definition of abuse and neglect. This case is a clear example of personal bias and overzealous reaction.

Stop DYFS from abusing their power by demanding a full investigation by Gov. Chris Christie: Sign The Petition.

To the idiots who try to stick up for DYFS and who probably really are DYFS agents, I say shut up! You idiots took me to court on a 27 page complaint of child abuse/neglect based on 4 previos allegations that you had already investigated and determined to be unfounded. How stupid must you be to clear a person of charges and then turn around and try to throw them into jail. Don't tell me. It's because you have a bunch of low-life losers who became supervisors in the DYFS system through affirmative action and other programs to help ghetto trash come into positions of influence. The supervisor in our case not only had some fake I-don't-know-what kind of hairdo but she spoke like she just got picked up by Camden police for drug trafficking out in North Camden or thereabout. I know the woman didn't make it through the system of her own abilities. She is too ugly to have advanced in the 'under the table' way. Nonetheless, without a lawyer to represent me I kicked DYFS's ass right there in court. The Honorable Judge Robert Page held up the 27 page complaint in his hand and gestured as if to throw it over his shoulder as he referred to it as "27 pages of nothing". And yes I do quote him word for word there. He then went on to speak to the 2 agents and their metrosexual looking lawyer as if he were speaking to little children. He said to them: "you've made a mess of things". He then had to explain to them that friction between parents and a rebellious teenager is not child abuse. It was pathetic. But nonetheless my wife and I were dropped from the charges and just wanted to go our ways and live our lives. But DYFS, angered over the defeat and utter humiliation sent agents up to the schools of my children again on 2 more occasions just to harass them and provoke me into violent action against them. They were angry that we would not allow them to see our 3 other children who were not involved in any of the allegations so in court they tried to push it by telling the judge the Honorable Octavia Melendez. She thought for about 3 seconds before shaking her head and saying "No, you don't need to see the other children, they are not involved in this" They were so scorched that they went up to the schools and dragged them out of class and threatened them, trying to force them to say bad things about us. When they would not comply they threatened my children with foster care. They still refused to budge, DYFS again got knocked on their ass. Yet the idioits repeated this action again on another occasion. One of these days they are going to get what they are wishing for. They are hoping that they can provoke a person into going violent on them or others, they want a situation like what happened out in Arizona. When that happens the so-called higher ups including all the way up to the State Attorney General will pretend that they didn't even know what was going on even though the State Attorney General and Deputy Attornies General have been rubber stamping every false complaint that comes across their desk from DYFS without even carefully examining the facts. As for me, well I was happy to make a bunch of low;life affirmative action idiots look just like the ghetto trash that they are. My daughter is 21 years old and being paid to the tune of $400 a month because of the fiasco created by DYFS. I'm Loving it!! It was great to see the NJ Supreme Court rule 7-0 against DYFS regarding the 16 year old girl who was wrongfully removed from her home just because her mother had slapped her and required her to pay part of the cable tv bill. Those parents will get a nice sum of money from the State. My lawsuit will follow soon, not only will I get money but some DYFS agents will be seeing some jail time. In other words they will be returning to the environment from which they came.

DyFS is corrupt and took my daughter after she said her father my xhusband molested her, DYFS closed the case. I refused to let my daughter go back and see her father. DYFS went to court on my xhusbands behalf and the courts gave him custody. I am on supervised visits. 1 hr 1x a week with a supervisor. Tiffany Williams and Dr. Janet Cahill, determined I was delusional. I am raising 4 other children who are thriving. 2 kids from my first marriage and 2 step children. But I cant raise my 1 child I had with him. 2yrs 2 months she has been gone and cost me hundreds of thousands of dollars. 8 months after she was gone I had a report from a psychologist that said I was not delusional and to return my daughter ASAP. the courts finally ruled a yr later to redo the reports and they stated i am fine and that DYFS was bias against me. If I was a single mom making $8 an hr.my daughter would still be living with a molester. Now i will continue to pay for their screw up and my daughter will hopefully heal....

you can fight dyfs by going to social serv. you can file for a admin. review. you can make them hurry and get shit going there is so much you can do that dyfs will not tell you or want you to know. i am not an attorney but i am doing this on my own and researched on how to fight the devil. please talk to an attorney asap and social serv, they are to help. public diffenders has no plan to do anything except go what dyfs wants with a little help on your part. there is hope but it requires you to dig very deep past into there is nothing more to research. there is that one place where there is the answers. if you want your kids back than fight to the death and never give up. there are so many things that dyfs does not want you to know and you all need to find out what they are to fight them off. i am fighting them myself. it will seem to take forever but well worth it.

I have been on both sides of the DYFS equation and from both sides I can tell you that they are inept and unethical at best. However, parents can't speak out publicly against them for fear of constant harassment, having their children taken, or worse.

If you are in New Jersey, contact congressman Rob Andrews. He has gone up against DYFS more than a few times. He went to bat for our family. After going to him DYFS immediately changed their tune, dropped all their false allegations, and we had our son returned within a few days. But make sure your case has merit before you go to him. If you are truly being wronged by DYFS then he just might help you. Don't go to him if you are a junkie that's just peeved that they took your kids
