CAN SOMEONE ON CSL OR PSL LIVE WITH CHILDREN?
The NJ Parole Board may prohibit a convicted sex offender from living in a residence where children reside. This includes an offender’s own children or grandchildren. Parole usually requires CSL or PSL parolees to receive a Living with Child (LWC) Assessment before deciding whether they can live with children.
At Maynard Law Office, LLC, we represent people who want permission from Parole to live with children or grandchildren. Our law firm has successfully obtained approval for clients to be allowed to live with their children. We also help with the client receiving their Living with Children assessment.
WHAT IS A LIVING WITH CHILD ASSESSMENT?
The NJ Parole Board makes the final decision on whether a parolee may live with children. Before approving a request to live with children, the Division of Parole must decide whether a parolee poses a risk of sexually re-offending against any of the children with whom he or she is seeking to live. The Division requires a “Living with Children Assessment” to help make this determination.
Our firm has professional relationships with psychologists who have expertise in the area of individuals with sex offense histories. We generally refer clients to these psychologists for Living with Children Assessments. Then, we prepare a petition which integrates the expert opinions of the psychologists with the relevant law and parole regulations, and advocate for your interests —and your right to live with your children in your own home.
HOW OUR FIRM CAN HELP YOU:
We are very familiar with the NJ Parole Board’s requirements and have helped many individuals obtain approval from Parole to live with their children. After our clients complete a Living with Children Assessment with a recommended forensic psychologist, our firm then submits a detailed petition on behalf of our clients to the Division of Parole, formally requesting that they be allowed to live with their children.
