Division of Child Protection and Permanency
The Division of Child Protection and Permanency (formerly the Division of Youth and Family Services or DYFS) is an agency of the State of New Jersey. Its purpose is to protect and promote the welfare of children. When allegations of abuse or neglect of a child are made, DCPP/DYFS has the authority to investigate the allegations.
Upon finding adequate evidence of abuse or neglect, DCPP/DYFS can seek an order from a Superior Court Judge permitting various forms of intervention designed to protect the children from further abuse or neglect. Intervention may include a requirement that one or both parents undergo psychological treatment or substance abuse counseling while more serious forms of intervention may include the removal of the child from his or her home and the placement of the child in foster care.
