If a child has been physically, emotionally, sexually or in some other way abused and neglected by his or her parents, government agencies such as CPS or CAPTA step in to protect the child. When these agencies function successfully, they truly protect the children by separating them from their abuser.
Due to the sensitive implications of a child abuse claim, detailed and thorough investigation of all the facts including evaluation of the parents may sometimes be overlooked. This can happen in spite of the fact that the legal ramifications of child abuse charges are severe and may be life-long. Being convicted of child abuse or sexual assault of a child will lead to a permanent sex offender status.
In order to avoid these severe consequences, a parent or guardian who has been charged with child physical abuse or sexual abuse needs to hire legal representation that can defend the case, conduct an investigation of the allegations, and communicate and negotiate with CPS and CAPTA on his or her behalf.
