DyfsNot charging a mother with neglect

On friday, october 2nd, dyfs was alerted to two minors (Ages 6 and 10) being home alone for hours after school in a house with no way to call out in case of emergency due to a lack of working telephones in the home. Having spoke to my son the day this took place, i was able to talk to the attending police officer that was sent to keep an eye on the children until the caseworker arrived, and requested that they keep me informed on what was happening. I gave him my name and number and asked that someone keep in touch with me (I live over 700 miles away) but i was never contacted. The following monday i contacted the dyfs office myself and was told someone would pull up the information and call me back. I didn't receive a call untill the next day, at which point i was told the case would be closed due to the childrens mother telling the caseworker she would be getting a babysitter for them. On the same day i spoke to the caseworker, my children were again home alone after school for an hour and i was told by my oldest son that even though they will be going to a babysitter after school, they will still have to walk home alone and stay there until the sitter arrives to pick them up, which could range from thirty to sixty minutes every day. Also, the things the caseworker told me my son said and how he felt about the situation are the complete opposite of everything he has ever said to me regarding the situation from the very first time it happened. I am planning on continuing to attempt a line of communication with their office to persuade them to keep the case open but i have every intention of taking this to another level to be heard.

    Woman, or man, whatever you are, mind your own bussiness! Don't you have any other more valuable things to do with your life? If you are so concern about those kids, why don't you offer to baby sit them? But, it seems you get your value by proving others wrong. Take a break, re evaluate your motives and interrupt your self righteos trip.

    I think this person is the parent of the children in question...and in that case, he has every right to be angry. I know I would be.

    Living 700 miles away you have every right to complain alot of Caseworkers don't want to do the job and who ever the idot is that said you should mind your own business ..They can truly stick it where the sun don't shine. Maybe they did not read how far you from them...nevertheless. I have been through something very similar where they locked the child out for 4 days and todate dyfs has done nothing to the person. And that child is 8 years old. YOU CAN FAX YOUR COMPLAINT TO DIRECTOR OF DYFS CHIRSTINE MOZES FAX NUMBER IS [protected] AND CALL TO FOLLOW UP IMMEDIATELY AT [protected] . I wish you the best.

    oh please they do not care.DYFS workers falsified evidence in my best friend case.
    until workers are arrested nothing will change with false wrong removal, by cps workers nationwide as here in new jersey.or until they are one by one daily SUED/then yes change for the better will come for your family.
    my best friend Sha-'Kaarii Bella Melendez, did what others have not.
    she took action, when she learn the TRUTH was the state clear her years
    ago in early 00's...she "officially however on record"was clear by the state office of attorney general paula t.dow office in late 2010, when such truth was discovered the state lied, and did not investigate for YEARS.
    from 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, and some of 2010.she finally was clear officially
    of neglect, abuse fake allegations by a jealous ex husband kevin spencer
    who she divorce happily, from his horrific drug alcohol use, criminal
    prone, where he later married some one just like him, jennifer medford.
    them two lied, falsify records.Abuse to the children only took place after
    DYFS workers, jennifer medford.kevin his fat sloppy cracker mother
    Catherine Spencer ROBERTS ALL FALSIFIED, LIED, and will be one day
    facing such judge during lawsuits all coming up, as well as the truth is
    the state really did assist with them all getting away with it, and that
    is the saddest worst crime of all, the girls suffer SO much, one specifically
    as yet the state was saying this is "real love"of a parent, yet the father
    was LIEING with his DRUNK addicted, wife jennifer, to keep the kid away
    only due to jealousy nothin else, against a loving beautiful sweet mom
    who clearly did not hurt, the child, they grew up priviledge spoil, happy
    in sports, music, dance class, a host of family, and good friends for almost
    11 and almost 8 years, great suburban life, until this happen to them.
    But moral of the story is, losers "going no place"trash like that was not
    able to break my best friend no way.

    She is now, a trained almost 10 year civil right activist.and advocate.
    she is now keeping her nose n the law books.everything from criminal law to family law federal state etc. procedural, constitutional law
    personal injury/tort law etc.
    she is clearly on her way to becoming a lawyer of the future! a attorney the state need, as national one who sue cps for money damage as soon as a injury by false and wrongful removal take place, or attempted removal harrassment by cps aka child protection services.
    she is to be commended, and IS commended by top attorneys all over
    as HARVARD expert and professor.

    it actually make her more aware as more informed, as extreme intelligence on study her law now almost 24hrs a day she is able to now turn her pain into a positive, helping many draft up claim notice of tort injury and a full federal lawsuit, as response from the state when the suit is pending filed, against these crooks she is able to help with custody motion draft, etc. reasonable price, helping many as most nj attorney as west coast to east, DO NOT CARE ABOUT CPS VIOLATION to the good parent but she do, and that is why she will make a great attorney one day as she is already on her way for past years, studying so hard, and helping with her activism, and daily advocate group Bella's Law helping so many she is a true champion, for being to PROVE the fraud on the court in nj with worker by name of GLORIA CAMERON WALTON as her and three other
    supervisor all KNEW child was clean of abuse, as report say there was not any thing wrong with the girl, no abuse, no neglect, even PIX from police
    was with the report showin NO SERIOUS INJURIES, ZERO bruising yet
    DYFS of union county area lied, falsified and make her lose years with
    the kids(Regular contact)but now they are reunited.but damage is done
    so she is suing, as the children and her have their FINAL justice,

    and she is now able to help other people by drafting, assisting with
    pro-se filing of a civil right personal injury lawsuit against child protection services, as so many experts agree
    with our advocate firm pro-se center bellaslaw.com and LACE advocate group "when your taking back your right and IMMEDIATE file a suit"
    change will be seen, and she is living proof of that.

    good luck, keep your head up, and stand tall and firm and strong and all will get better once your suing, and taking control back form horrible
    agency crooked workers known nationally as CPS.

    You, sir, are a freak! No one is required to have a telephone. This women obviously has custody of your children and you sound like a vengeful lunatic cop caller for harassing the police and DYFS over these children being left home for thirty minutes, which is completely possible in nearly every state. DYFS AND THE POLICE are ignoring your concerns bc they are unreasonable and this mother hadn't done anything illegal or remotely wrong. You live700 miles away-- if you're so concerned then move closer and be an actual father to your kids instead of calling emergency services on them... you're wasting valuable resources. Christ, send them a phone of need be. Stop harassing your children community and ex. ... it makes you like ridiculous.
