Protecting The Rights Of Spouses, Parents And Children

Some legal matters drag on and on through litigation, taking months or years for decisions or settlements to be reached. Other matters — such as those involving domestic violence or child protection concerns — are expedited due to their emergent nature.

When you are facing court proceedings concerning your domestic violence or child protection matter, it is important to find an experienced lawyer who can act quickly to protect your rights. At the Law Offices of Jonathan D. Gordon, Esq., LLC, that is exactly what we do. From our office in Teaneck, we represent clients throughout New Jersey who are involved in domestic violence or Division of Child Protection and Permanency (formerly DYFS) matters.

Domestic Violence/Domestic Abuse

Few matters are more emotionally charged than those concerning the well-being of your family. Whether you are a victim of domestic violence or if you are accused of domestic violence, you need an attorney who can handle the matter in a sensitive, timely and effective manner.

Domestic violence proceedings move very quickly. Within 10 days of the filing of a temporary restraining order (TRO), there will be a final hearing on the domestic violence complaint. Each party needs an attorney to prepare them for the hearing, one who can find witnesses and gather evidence over a short period of time. We can provide the experienced and expedient assistance you need.

Division Of Child Protection And Permanency (DCP&P)

DCP&P is New Jersey's child protection agency. It typically gets involved when allegations of abuse or neglect are made against a parent or an institution such as a group home or school. At times, a parent may be suffering from a substance abuse or mental health problem. If you are a parent under investigation by DYFS, you need an attorney who can assist you regarding:

  • Removal of your child from your home
  • Ongoing DYFS supervision, home visits, assessments
  • Compliance with court orders
  • Supervised visitation
  • Reunification with your child
  • Termination of parental rights proceedings

Attorney Jonathan Gordon is a former New Jersey Deputy Attorney General who once represented DYFS as their attorney in family court. He has a good understanding of the way the courts handle DYFS cases and has the experience and inside knowledge that can benefit his clients.
