DYFS / DCPP Defense

The attorneys at Afonso Archie & Foley provide experienced representation to parents, foster parents, children, caretakers and families involved in all matters brought by the New Jersey Division of Child Protection and Permanency (formerly the Division of Youth and Family Services or DYFS now DCPP). We understand that these matters are emotional and often very complicated.

DYFS DCPP which stands for The Division of Youth and Family Services is a powerful organization that can possibly ruin your life and divide your family. What may have started off as a small incident or a misunderstanding can be blown out of proportion, leading you to be locked “into the system.”

Your best chance of success may depend on the experience of the lawyer you choose and how soon you hire one. Having an aggressive DYFS DCPP lawyer on your side is a beneficial investment as waiting could possibly cost you everything.

Our office has over 100 combined years of experience handling DYFS DCPP matters.  Eric Foley is a former Deputy Attorney General who prosecuted DYFS DCPP cases for many years after completing clerkships for Judges who presided over DYFS cases. In addition, Special Counsel to our office, Octavia Melendez, J.S.C. Ret., is a former New Jersey Superior Court Judge who presided over thousands of DYFS DCPP cases while on the bench. With this kind of experience, our lawyers bring a unique perspective that they bring to representing clients in this area of the law.

With two former DYFS DCPP Deputy Attorney Generals and a former DYFS DCPP Judge .. why call anyone else?
