Child Abuse Charges in Las Vegas

OverviewFaced with the Stigma of Child Abuse Charges? Contact Attorney Cal Potter

The Nevada Division of Child and Family Services is responsible for investigating allegations of child abuse. Parents could find themselves the target of an investigation, even when no wrongdoing has taken place, which is why legal assistance is needed to help restore one’s good name.There’s no arguing that child abuse is detrimental to society. DCFS investigators sometimes see themselves as a sort of “hero” in the fight against child abuse, and vow to bring charges against anyone who acts inappropriately. The problem with this way of thinking is that certain acts never get looked into thoroughly. Instead, innocent people become targets when they in fact have been good, responsible parents.To make matters worse, innocent parents believe that since they have nothing to hide, it won’t hurt to talk with investigators. They find out the hard way that this is not such a good idea whenever their words are misconstrued, and used to bring charges against them.

If you’re the target of a child abuse investigation, it’s important to maintain a defensive posture right away. This will ensure your rights are protected, and will let child care investigators know you won’t be bullied.
