DYFS  IN NEW JERSEY NEEDS TO BE STOP
November 15, 2012

Dear President Obama:
Dear Representative Andrews:
Dear Senator Lautenberg:
Dear Senator Menendez:

GO ON LINE: R E A D all the complaints about how DYFS and ALL CPS services are dividing families all over the USA. In NJ alone parents are reaching for anyone who can help them from these people who take their children because of anonymous calls from disgruntle-spouses-neighbors X's'. Granted there are those who are BAD PARENTS BUT there are also who have had their children taken because of a rash or a mental parent(not-a-legal-signature)has been coerced into signing. In this case DYFS is reaching for straws accusing (neighbor)Cassandra D. of one unfounded allegation after another. DYFS has already threatened her with "TIME-PAST" in which THEY use this AFTER STALLING FOR TIME to CLAIM and KEEP her children!? This cannot be legal?! What is going on with the world and those who are bound to protect?DYFS in NJ has a BAD reputation of using this "TIME--PAST" EXCUSE to TAKE CHILDREN!!! YES! The people running DYFS/CPS lie to judges, doctors and so forth to accuse innocent parents. Each child adopted brings the state $4,000, $6,000 and up to $8,000 if they are mentally disable...it's stomach turning.We need to help Cassandra and many like her! Help us get DYFS/CPS services all over the USA on the right track!1) DO AWAY WITH THE "TIME-PAST" EXCUSE DYFS/CPS USE TO TAKE CHILDREN AND BREAK UP FAMILIES!2) STOP DYFS/CPS SERVICES EVERYWHERE: FROM (STALLING) BOUNCING FROM ALLEGATION(EXCUSE) TO ALLEGATION(EXCUSE) ACCUSING PARENTS OF UNFOUNDED CHARGES! If there is NO proof-You can NOT-ADD another just to kill time ...and CLAIM-TIME-PAST"CV

I need help! I have been fighting for 5 and a half years to prove that we did nothing wrong and that the judge and the DAG were most likely paid off in my case. The DAG has said on 2 separate occasions in front of witnesses that my son was a business deal. I need someone to help me and to look into my case. The records show no wrong doing by myself or my husband. The records show complete bias by the judge. DCPP went judge shopping to get the outcome they wanted. My oldest was born with a medical problem then it turned into we did it. Please someone help us
This is insanity! We are trying to help our daughter who just gave birth and we were told "DYFS coming to your house, You better be ready to put on a show! We going to make you jump through hoops!" That was told to us by the DYFS worked who interviewed us and denied us. Very involved case, in process of attorney action. Trying to stop them from taking baby from hospital to put in foster care. They have not taken family members into consideration!
I completely am sickened by them. They took my adopted son who is mentally challenged because of unexplained bruises. I took him to every doctor they asked me to he went through countless exams. It makes me sick.
I agree with most people here that DCPP has to be monitored better. I did get my kid back after dealing with a lot of non-sense with DCPP. I do want it to be known that most of these post read are not helping the case of monitoring DCPP any better. More then half the post are blaming DCPP for the parents misdeeds. Take responsibility for your actions, buck up and comply with their orders. It is a lot easier than trying to explain everything away in court. Accept the help they give you and stop being so resistant to their demands. Until you can get your kids back you will be their prisoner and the sooner you realize it the faster you will work to getting your kids back home. I truly feel the hurt from having kids taken away. It took me 3 years of dealing with them, the first year of me being resistant, to get my son back. It's our kids and their view is if we really love them we will do whatever it takes to get them back home. Anything less than that they will see as not wanting to fight for your kid. I do not agree that they remove kids for any minor infraction they find, as my son was suspected of being abused in foster home. This was frustrating to me because he wasn't taken because of abuse, but for neglect due to my excessive drinking problems. So let's change the laws on why kids truly need to be removed from homes. And have stricter judges that fight for the parents. Once you get to court all odds are against you because everyone in the court room ultimately works for the same company, the state. Things need to change in this department, but more importantly parents we need to fight just as hard to get our kids home. Find support and pull yourself up by your boot straps and show them they can't get us down.
DYFS of capemay county needs to do something they removed my grandson from a safe home and put him in 3 different homes now he is in a home with drugs and alcohol and they think hes safe when they removed him because his mother was drinking, Makes no sence
angry ex 2 days after divorce files abuse and neglect allegations to dyfs. dyfs swoops in and gives my boys to my ex who was remove from our house by dyfs 2 years ago!!!!
I did not see my boys for over 3 weeks and could not get an answer out of them as to court date or even when I would get children back
They are violating my parental rights.
My ex is now a heroin addict (went from coke, to pills to crack and now heroin - never stopped doing drugs) and STILL has
Custody of my daughter. Dyfys set me up to take custody and even when I won my appeal, still have yet to have her returned. Now, they took her under the state and NEVER told me!! I need a lawyer who is willing to fight them. I have a lawsuit as I've said,
My parental rights are being violated. Who checks up on them?! Who makes sure they are doing their job! My ex is NOT ALLOWED to see his other child. The maternal grandmother WILL NOT allow him to see the child. Yet Dyfys says it's not a problem? That person is wrong?! He's a heroin addict, his ex has been in rehab since November and he has not even been into a program!! I want a ****ing answer. WHO CHECKS UP ON DYFYS?? Oh and did I mention, not only did Dyfys not inform me of what was going on, they also did not inform the courts. I was in court twice and no mention of this was made. I want to go to every media outlet and every single person who holds an office. I want an answer. People need to stop allowing these people to take our babies just because they do not like us!
They are the reason kids are SO OUT OF CONTROL!!! Because your not aloud to discipline your child. There is nothing wrong with an old fashion*****whooping, as long as your not punching your children and stuff like that. There is ABSOLUTELY NO reason for them to be knocking on our doors!!!
In my case, NJ DYFS relied heavy on the past, lets hear the truth, which NJ DYFS does not want you to hear and does not want my childhood records brought up at ALL! As a child, my mother became addicted to drugs, heroein/crack, and my Great Grandparents cared for me. But they soon contacted NJ DYFS for me because they were being evicted. NJ DYFS came to get me but I would not let go of the bed post. After a long talk with my Grandfather, I agreed to go into a NJ Foster home. In the Foster home. the NJ Foster Father sexually molested me / physically assaulted me repeatedly. I told the NJ DYFS Caseworker during a visit, the only thing NJ DYFS did was move me to another NJ Foster Home. The 2nd Foster Home was nice. Soon, NJ DYFS placed me into the custody of my Great Grandparents in a Seniors Only Home in Camden, NJ. Because I was not allowed there, the Senior Home found us an apartment in Abblett Village Camden, NJ. After a couple years passed, my Grandfather died and my Grandmother moved, leaving me in the custody of my Prostitute / drug addicted mother, on Welfare Card, in the nations poorest city. I started to skip School, because I was scared and the only white person. I was never put into 9th grade by anyone. My Mom was in and out of jail and I kicked her out because she was stealing everything I did have. I living alone at 14, not in School, on Welfare, in a Housing Project in the middle of Camden NJ, and NJ DYFS was no where to be found. I lived for 3 years in Abblett Village, alone, not in School, struggling, surviving and watching my mom deteriorate. She died from her addiction in 2000, at the age of 36. I have endured and seen countless horrors, that one could only imagine. NJ DYFS keeps its secrets for a reason, they destroyed my entire life but wants to use it against me? I have tried repeatedly to the NJ Family Court of Gloucester County to have my childhood NJ DYFS records released but NJ DYFS objected and Judge Mary K. White denied me the release of my records. Why don't NJ DYFS want my records released? Because everyone will see that NJ DYFS broke the NJ STATE LAW and the NJ Court wants to protect one of its departments.
In New Jersey, An accident occurred, where there were no purposeful acts charged, NJ DYFS has not followed the NJ State Law by trying Reasonable Efforts FIRST. I was incarcerated, when my son Richard was born. His mother medically neglected him from birth for 9 months with no vaccinations, where he suffered 2 ear infections and undescended testicles. When she finally sought medical care, the Pediatricians call NJ DYFS. NJ DYFS took my son, as well as his mothers following child. She did not comply with DYFS and Voluntarily surrendered her rights with the initial persuasion from NJ DYFS. She surrendered her rights so her mother could get custody and because I do not have family to take care of him. While Incarcerated, I requested visitations with my son and NJ DYFS objected. The Judge granted me 1 hour a month visitation and NJ DYFS did not fully comply. The very 1st visitation, the NJ DYFS caseworker tried persuading me to voluntarily surrender my rights through entire visitation, not applying Reasonable Efforts like the NJ State Law states NJ DYFS must provide. At Court DYFS reason for not applying Reasonable Efforts was I was incarcerated and had taken the classes they would have provided, this is no where in the NJ Law! While incarcerated, I was in constant contact with NJ DYFS, showing and telling them that I wanted to be a part of my sons life, not gain custody. DYFS was also informed I would be released soon but NJ DYFS still filed for Termination, stating they exhausted their efforts, not Reasonable Efforts. While incarcerated, I was not transported to Court for numerous Court dates, even though NJ Court and NJ DYFS knew right where I was and I was even notified by the Court/DYFS that I had Court. My Public Defender didn't even communicate with me properly and didn't do significant things for my case that I requested him to. I contacted the NJ Bar about him. I was released and was visiting my son weekly. Visitation went great, I have videos that I requested both Lawyers to use, but they did not. NJ DYFS brought an allegation forth to the Court that I tried to abduct my son from the bus stop but absolutely nothing happened nor anything else but why was it brought forth? My Public Defender provided wrong Court dates for the Termination Trial, which the Judge excused. My Parental Rights were terminated by the NJ Court, which NJ DYFS has EVER tried to do, Terminating Rights apparently is there Reasonable Efforts. Then I was told I can appeal, Office Parental Representation Lawyer Peter Milligan contacts me stating he is doing my appeal. I request 3 times to speak with him before submitting appeal, Peter agrees. Then I receive a copy of the appeal in the mail but didn't speak to Peter before. I then call him and his supervisor, to which both agreed that he should have met with me before submitting appeal. Appeal then was denied, with a sorry. NJ DYFS reports are full of lies, where caseworkers from Gloucester County NJ, Michele Johnson, etc. tw
As a mother,grandmother and representative of the state's Child Protection & Permanency agency, I am empathetic to all of stories shared. However, I must provide some insight into the many misconceptions held by many about the agency due to horrific personal experiences. Fact, the agency has been put into place to insure the safety, permanency and well-being of all children residing within NJ. It is not the goal of the agency to separate families but to stabilize the family system in an effort to prevent out of home placements. The unfortunate reality is that many families involved with the agency have issues of unacknowledged and unaddressed substance abuse, mental illness and domestic violence. Each of the above mentioned contribute to the physical, emotional and sexual abuse of one of NJ's most vulnerable groups, the children. While the agency strives to assist the families by connecting them with their much needed intervention services, the quantity and quality of the services available do not meet the needs of the families served. It is realized that no two families are the same and nor are their needs. However, the services available are not as flexible and or diverse to meet the needs of the diverse families that we encounter.

Now, let's speak about the case manager's that more often then not, I have read have been referred to as individuals on a power trip. For some that might just be true. However, all who come in contact with the agency must remember that as parent's you do have rights. However, if you don't know your rights you don't have any. It's not fair to argue simply because you feel that you can. Knowing the truth and being able to effectively convey your truth are essential when it comes to dealing with any governmental agency. Educate yourself and come correct and more likely than not you will have your involvement with the Division behind you sooner than later. In closing, be mindful of the activities that you engage in that can have a negative impact on your ability to safely raise your child(ren). It is not ok to have your drug abusing boyfriend living in the home with you and your children when he's not engaged in treatment. Current episodes of mental illness that are not being treated by a psychiatrist is a red flag. These are just a few examples....educate yourself.
I have a Dyfas case because my boyfriend has a drug problem. Which is a disease like cancer they through him on the street with no were to go. Made me get a restraining order. I go to court and because my witness was nodding out they made me do a urine. For some reason the test came back for THC I can't smoke weed never had never will. Now they have me living in fear with threats and false accusations. Threatening me. My boyfriend of 20 years was found bleeding from the head. Malnutritioned, dehydrated and exhaustion. He's still homeless. He's not aloud here at all. I am scared if I sneak him in my kids will be taken. Can they treat me this way
