Children In Court Services

Children In Placement (FC Docket Type)

An FC case is established for any child who is placed outside his or her home under the supervision of the Division of Youth and Family Services (DYFS). A DYFS caseworker files a Notice of Placement with Children in Court Services within 72 hours of the placement. These cases are reviewed by a trained citizen volunteer board known as the Child Placement Review (CPR) Board. The purpose of the board is to review cases in which a child has been placed outside his or her home and to make recommendations to the court.

The CPR must review these cases within 45 days.
