Child Abuse and Neglect

Howell Child Neglect False Accusation Attorney

Charges of child abuse and neglect can be serious; in some cases, a conviction can lead to loss of custody, termination of parental rights, sex offender registration or jail time. While some abuse and neglect charges stem from divorce and child custody matters, other charges are filed against individuals who are not parents or family members. In Michigan, the Children's Protective Services (CPS) program is obligated to investigate cases involving potential harm to the health and welfare of children, regardless of whether the underlying reports or allegations are based on facts.

If you have been accused of abusing or neglecting your child or another child, the advice and representation of an experienced defense lawyer can enable you to understand your legal rights. When necessary, a lawyer can defend you against criminal prosecution.
