Child Abuse

Child Abuse

Offences related to child abuse include allegations of physical violence, sexual assault, threats, abandonment, failing to provide necessaries, and other such allegations against children. Allegations of child abuse are often highly emotionally charged and can be severely destructive to the family unit when they are leveled against a parent. The desire to defend such charges is often at odds with the desire to resolve the case in order to allow the family to re-unite.
