Child Abuse Attorney in Orlando

What is Considered Child Abuse in Florida?

When someone like a teacher, doctor, or religious leader notices bruises, injuries, or other potential signs of child abuse, they have a duty to report it. However, this sometimes leads to false accusations of child abuse. If not handled these carefully, these cases can escalate out of control, and you risk losing your relationship with your children. This is traumatic for everyone involved. An experienced attorney can help you explain what really happened and avoid the devastating consequences of a conviction.

Common situations that may result in erroneous child abuse allegations include:

  • Malicious and false claims of abuse
  • The child is injured in a situation that is not related to abuse
  • Medical conditions that are mistaken as abuse
  • Children getting into fights with other children
  • Discipline-related circumstances, such as spanking, in which the child is not injured

The penalties of a child abuse conviction are severe. These penalties can include decades in prison, thousands of dollars in fines, loss of custody, and a loss of parental rights. Additionally, false allegations of child abuse can have negative social consequences, including isolation from your community. This is why it is essential to fight these allegations and exonerate your name.
