New Jersey Expands Safe Haven Law

Several months ago a Bill was signed into law expanding the New Jersey Safe Haven Infant Protection Act to now include as locations for placement of infants, fire stations and emergency squads as safe havens for parents to give up their newborns. This expands the locations which previously had been limited basically to police stations and hospitals.

Although this law is in effect, for the benefit of the birth parents and for the children, placing a child through a licensed agency is preferable as it will allow all parties to have more information and certainly would be in the best interest of the child.
