Child Abuse and Neglect
Seasoned Monmouth County Child Abuse Defense Attorneys
One of the most difficult cases that a lawyer may deal with in Monmouth County is child abuse. Aside from losing parental rights, the defendant may even received prison time if found guilty. This is why an aggressive approach is needed to fight these allegations in court. At the Law Offices of Jef Henninger, Esq., our professional Monmouth County child abuse defense attorneys will protect you and fight back against the police, DYFS and the prosecutor.
Criminal child abuse charges may also terminate parental rights, which is brought by DYFS. DYFS cases are completely separate, even if they may be related to a criminal case. A DYFS case will be heard in the Monmouth County Family Court rather than the main court house. If your current criminal defense attorney is not experienced with DYFS cases, you may have to get two attorneys. It is more practical and cost-effective to hire an attorney who can handle both the criminal charges as well as the DYFS case.
The Law Offices of Jef Henninger, Esq., has a team of lawyers who have successfully handled child abuse cases involving allegations of neglect, shaken baby syndrome, sexual abuse and excessive corporal punishment.
