At The Law Offices of Amy M. Montes, we understand that your family law case is extremely important, especially when it involves your children. This is why, if you believe child neglect or abuse is taking place, it is important to gather as much evidence as necessary to make your case. This will not only help the courts gain a better understanding of what is happening, but also stop the abuse in its tracks.
Collecting Evidence and Gaining Credibility
Child abuse and neglect are treated very seriously by the court, which is why it is important to be able to prove your child’s case. Though many claims are made every year, some do not have the credibility, which is why you must back up your case as necessary. The court will attempt to utilize photographs, mental health records, eyewitness testimony, and more to find a case of child abuse or neglect. If you have evidence from other sources, ensure that these sources are credible – such as evidence that came from a close family member or a teacher. It is important to reach accuracy in your case and stray from bias.
An experienced attorney can look at the circumstances of your case and determine what needs to happen next based on the evidence that they see. They want to make sure that you are not defaming a defendant, such as making injurious statements about them that are not true.
Taking Action to Stop Child Neglect
If a neglectful person has custody of your child, you should call law enforcement because your situation may be dire. If you believe that they are in a current abusive or neglectful situation, you can speak to them about options you may have to get the child taken out of their care. There may be an emergency hearing, which we can help you with in your family law case.
