Accused of Child Abuse in New York?

The New York Department of Human Services may begin the legal process to have you pay for dependency and action taken against you for neglect.
The NY social workers may contact you concerning the neglect or abuse of your child. It will help to consult our lawyers for guidance on how to defend yourself. Also, as a teacher or nursing home caretaker accused of abuse, do not risk starting a defense plan without a lawyer’s input.
What is an Abuse and Neglect Allegation?
NY child abuse laws fall under the penal code and deal with the cruelty suffered by children. Physical maltreatment, exploitation, sexual assault, physical battering are forms of child abuse. Neglect may involve abandonment, the failure to provide food, water, medication, heat, eyeglasses, cleanliness, dentures, and health services.
To the NY Human Services Department, allegations of child mistreatment are a serious issue. Upon the filing of a child abuse case against a parent, the department may authorize the removal of your child for a temporary stay in a relatives’ house or foster home.
