Ocean County Child Abuse & Neglect

Aggressive Defense Lawyers for Child Abuse and Neglect Charges

Clients facing a child abuse charge in Ocean County can be one of the most intimidating and complicated cases a lawyer can handle. If the family law attorney is not knowledgeable in child abuse cases, the defendant can possibly be found guilty and may also lose their parental rights. Thus, if you or a loved one is facing these kinds of allegations, an aggressive approach with an experienced lawyer is usually what is needed to best fight these charges. At the Law Offices of Jef Henninger, Esq., our child abuse defense lawyers will protect you and fight back against the prosecutor, the police, and the DCPP.

Ocean County DCPP Investigations Leading to Termination of Parental Rights in New Jersey

If a child abuse case is not fought against properly, the Division of Child Protection and Permanency (DCPP) can create an additional case against you to lead to an action to terminate parental rights. Even if the DCPP case is related to the criminal case of child abuse and/or neglect, the DCPP case is completely separate. In fact, the DCPP vase will be heard in family court, not the main court house. If your criminal defense attorney is not familiar with DCPP cases, you may have to hire an additional lawyer. To help save costs and to have a more focused approach with your situation in totality, the Ocean County attorneys at the Law Offices of Jef Henninger, Esq., can handle both the criminal charges as well as the DCPP actions.

Our law firm has successfully handled numerous child abuse cases involving allegations of neglect, shaken baby syndrome, excessive corporal punishment and sexual abuse.
