If a time comes when the Division of Child Protection & Permanency (“DCP&P” formerly “DYFS”) becomes involved with your family, Ms. Peoples is experienced with representing parents in matters involving DCP&P in both Sussex County and Warren County. It is important to never try to “go it alone” when DCP&P is involved with your family.
For parents who have a child together but were never married, visitation and child support issues commonly arise. Although you can file an application with the Court on your own to address these issues, it is important to hire legal counsel to help you fight for you and your children. With or without an attorney, you must prove to the Court why you are entitled to what you are requesting and, if you fail to do so, the Court cannot award you the relief you seek.
When a marriage is ending in divorce, it is a very emotional time. It is important to hire legal counsel to advise you of your rights, help you to fight for a fair and reasonable settlement or, if necessary, take you through trial.
In any of these circumstances, speaking with an attorney can help you understand how best to approach your particular situation.
