Child abuse and endangerment are defined as:
Child abuse is a physical injury inflicted on a child in a manner that is not accidental.
In addition to slapping, hitting, and out-of-control spanking, child abuse
includes emotional and sexual abuse of a child. Neglect, willful cruelty,
and unjustified punishment that results in physical pain or mental suffering
are also considered child abuse.
Child endangerment is an indirect form of child abuse. It occurs when a child is allowed
to witnesses the physical abuse of another.
We offer a
no-charge consultation and will meet with clients who are incarcerated.
People in a long list of occupations, from doctors and nurses to employees
of photo processing stores, are required by law to report any suspicions
of child abuse. A report by a teacher or day care provider triggers an
investigation by Child Protective Services (CPS). The children may be
removed from your custody immediately and—sometimes—permanently.
