Toms River Child Custody Lawyers help client regain unsupervised visitation

Our Toms River Child Custody Lawyers helped a client regain her parental rights today in Ocean County Superior Court. The client was facing a tough DYFS case at the same time her divorce case was going on. As a result of her cases being mismanaged by a prior attorney, her case was a total mess. In fact, these cases appeared hopeless from the surface. However, when our lawyers see a tough case, we get tougher.worked non-stop to fight against the non-stop allegations from her husband, the law guardian and DYFS. The judge was a second away from putting the client in in-patient but we prevented it from happening.continued to fight hard and at the next court appearance, we got the DYFS case dismissed and as a result, the client’s visitation was no longer supervised.

Ocean County

In this case, our client (the father) had a vindictive ex call DYFS (now DCPP) on him and make false allegations of child abuse and neglect.  Unfortunately, the client did not call us when dealing with the DYFS investigation.  Like many people, he felt that he didn’t need a lawyer because he didn’t do anything wrong.  He wasn’t using drugs so why not take a drug test?  After passing several tests, he failed one.  He swore that he didn’t use any drugs so we made sure that he took a hair follicle test.  We then worked with DYFS to close out their investigation once we were able to show them that this was a false positive.  We also made sure that DYFS sent over a report to the court.  The timing of everything was very close but the court received everything the day before the motion date.  As a result, the mother’s motion to suspend parenting time was denied and our client’s visitation rights were restored just in time for the holidays.
