NEW JERSEY DYFS SUCKS! May 08, 2006 10:46 AM

I am a 20 year old mother of a 3 year old boy. DYFS came into my life because of my X roommate. Me and my boyfriend kicked her out after we found out she was doing drugs and was no longer paying rent. She told us that she would get us back by calling DYFS and ruining our lives.A month later after I just got home from the hospital due to Cysts on my ovaries,DYFS knocks on my door. I let them in and they tell me about this "anonymous" call.They told me that the person said me and my boyfriend argued infront of my son and did drugs. They decided from the acusations that they where taking my son out of my custody and putting him with my mom. I insisted that DYFS gives me a drug test to prove I wasnt using drugs.So they gave me one. It came back negative, but according to the judge its only one test and it doesnt prove anything. Im complying with everything DYFS wants to me do just to get my son back but Im not to sure on how to get this moving faster and just get him back where he belongs. I make an effort everyday to see my son after 9 hours of work and when I leave he crys. DYFS doesnt realize how they damage a family and the children that they care sooooo much about...if anyone can help me or give me advice I would deffinately apperciate it! Julie

Knowledge is POWER,Get Armed!!!! June 30, 2006 7:20 AM

Dear Julie!!! Get informed and a strong attorney right away this is a corrupt agency that feeds on lower income women with little or no knowlegde of how they operate. These blood thirsty individuals that come like a theif in the night to destroy your family, and take YOUR children. All it takes is a false call or hear say and it gets them on a mission. No matter what they tell you, they are NOT your friends!! Knowledge is POWER! Feel free to contact me directly and I will help as much as possible. Check out to start!! Know your rights and act on them. Check out my daughters site who now is deceased in Nov.2005, but my fight continues( I feel your loss and confusion over this whole matter, in America you say? I know trust me!! E-mail me if you want to or by way of care2. God Bless you and get informed, they are not YOUR friends. Everything you do and say they document and not always correctly, every phone call or conversation you have with any official document it, keep a paper trail!!!!!, even record them like we did!!!
