DYFS can come after you for child support

My client’s child was placed in a long term care facility because the child had a number of serious issues.  The agreement for placement had a vague provision with regard to who would pay the costs.  My client had no idea that they could come after her at some point.  After the case was closed, the Board of Social Services filed a motion on DYFS’ behalf for my client to pay thousands of dollars per month.  This would have destroyed her financially.  Our team of tough, smart DYFS and Child Support lawyers fought hard for the client and demanded a full trial.  In the end, we were able to get the case dismissed to that my client did not have to pay anything!

If DYFS or the Board of Social Services is going after you for child support in any court in New Jersey, call us today.
