When a person’s ability to safely parent is brought into question by DCP&P or ACS, it can bring on a strong emotional response.  CPS organizations like DCP&P in New Jersey could refer you to Lamb + Maddux, LLC. for a psychological evaluation. We are a DCP&P approved vendor for psychological evaluation and treatment services in NJ.  You can also hire Lamb + Maddux, LLC. to complete your psychological evaluation for your DCP&P case. While there are various parental rights, these rights are balanced against the safety and protection of children.  When parents cannot provide a minimally sufficient degree of parental care, they can face supervised parenting time, court-ordered services, removals, and termination of their parental rights.

In these cases, psychologists rely upon their skills to provide the court with opinions relevant to parenting capacity. If you are seeking a psychological evaluation for a CPS case, Dr. Maddux is a nationally recognizable parenting capacity evaluator.  He has performed hundreds of evaluations at the request of NJ DCP&P, NYC Family Courts, Heartshare, and other child protective service agencies. Parent attorneys have referred to him as “balanced” and “fair.” Dr. Maddux is experienced in this area and serves as a member of national committees charged with developing various policy statements and practice guidelines used by forensic practitioners throughout the United States for conducting DCP&P, ACS, CPS, and child protection evaluations.  Our evaluations are culturally competent, impartial, structured, and transparent. We are happy to discuss your case today.
