Protection Against Charges Of Child Abuse

The Family Court Act of New York defines child abuse as an act, or failure to act, by any parent or caretaker that results in the bodily or emotional harm of a child, which may include sexual or physical abuse. Child neglect may be the failure to provide abadequate food, shelter, clothing, medical attention, or educational opportunity.

The authorities treat child abuse charges with the utmost seriousness. Those convicted face restrictions on visitation with their children. In addition, they may face difficulty when seeking employment, applying for a loan or endeavoring to retain custody of their children.
