Protecting Children

Protecting children from physical, sexual, and emotional abuse should be the primary concern of every adult in the State of Florida. It is critical that any serious suspicion regarding alleged child abuse be investigated by appropriate professionals immediately. Corresponding medical or psychological evidence confirming the parent’s suspicions is necessary in most instances. Contacting a qualified attorney to discuss these issues and to file the appropriate pleadings in a timely manner is paramount to the success or defense of these cases.

Most incidents of reported sexual or physical abuse will require the immediate intervention of state agencies including the Department of Children and Family Services (DCF), state and local law enforcement agencies, and other state appointed personnel. Upon receiving a report of abuse, state agencies may intervene and remove the child from the parent’s home within twenty-four hours. These cases may carry criminal and other charges against the parents and could result in fines, imprisonment, or termination of the rights of the parent(s) to the abused child.

In the event that allegations are made which result in court intervention, please contact us immediately so that we may best assist you.
