NYC ACS Lawyer Michael S. Discioarro Discusses Latest dismissal of acs case against client.
By: Law Offices of Michael Discioarro
NEW YORK - March 4, 2021 - PRLog -- When ACS does not take parent to court, they file a case against the parents at the Office of Children and Family Services. This is an administrative agency that judges acs cases. The cases are heard by ALJ and it is not a family court proceeding. Often a negative finding can damage a parent's ability to obtain employment in child care or healthcare. The case of ACS v. R.D. hearing id 732989 is one example.

The client was accused of child abuse by ACS without a shred of evidence. Once the case was processed, ACS dismissed the charges. "This is a clear example of how dysfunctional ACS is. We are happy for our client," Mr. Discioarro said. OCFS is not familiar to mane residents of New York, but it is a large and powerful agency with hundreds of millions of dollars at its disposal. Here is how they describe themselves.

OCFS is dedicated to improving the integration of services for New York's children, youth, families and vulnerable populations; to promoting their development; and to protecting them from violence, neglect, abuse and abandonment. The agency provides a system of family support, juvenile justice, child care and child welfare services that promote the safety and well-being of children and adults. Among the operating principles across all program areas are that services should be developmentally appropriate, family-centered and family-driven, community-based, locally responsive, and evidence and outcome based.

OCFS is responsible for programs and services involving foster care, adoption and adoption assistance, child protective services including operating the Statewide Central Register for Child Abuse and Maltreatment, preventive services for children and families, services for pregnant adolescents, and protective programs for vulnerable adults. OCFS is also responsible for the functions performed by the State Commission for the Blind and coordinates state government response to the needs of Native Americans on reservations and in communities.

The agency provides oversight and monitoring of regulated child care (family day care, group family day care, school-age child care and day care centers outside of NYC), legally exempt child care, child care subsidies, child care resource and referrals, and the Advantage After School Program, and also provides services and programs for infants, toddler, pre-schoolers, and school-age children and their families.

The agency is responsible for all elements of the state's juvenile justice programs, transformation of the juvenile justice system, administering and managing residential facilities, and one reception center program for juvenile delinquents and juvenile offenders placed in the custody of the OCFS Commissioner.
