Child Abuse & Neglect
Child abuse or neglect is a serious crime that may have more than criminal consequences for the accused. A child abuse or neglect investigation can also affect your custody rights and visitation rights. A charge of child abuse or neglect can include such things as: physical, sexual or emotional abuse of a child, maltreatment of a child or negligence in the care or treatment of a child.
Usually, a child abuse or neglect case begins with child protective services (CPS). CPS is a division of the Clark County Department of Family Services that investigates reports of child abuse and neglect. Once a claim of abuse or neglect is reported to CPS, the agency will investigate the matter and may take a child into protective custody depending on the result of the investigation.
If you are facing the possibility that your child will be taken into protective custody, or if your child has already been taken into custody by CPS, it is important to talk to an attorney about your legal rights. Child abuse allegations are serious, and you will need a legal professional to help with this matter if you are to protect not only your legal rights but your child’s best interests.
