How Hiring a Child Abuse Lawyer Could Make All the Difference

Child abuse allegations are a serious matter. If you’re the subject of an investigation by Child Protective Services (CPS), you may be wondering if you need to hire a lawyer. Below are 3 reasons why hiring a child abuse lawyer right away could make all the difference. 

 

If you or a loved one is facing child abuse charges, contact the Law Offices of Keren Goldenberg today to discuss the details of your case: online or by phone: 978-221-2503 (Lowell), 617-431-2701 (Belmont).

What you say can be used against you. 

It’s possible you feel caught off-guard or are frustrated by the circumstances of your investigation by CPS. You may be under investigation resulting from a false report, or perhaps you experienced an out-of-character lapse in your usual responsible parenting. When people feel frustrated or misunderstood, it’s natural to react. Hiring a child abuse lawyer as soon as allegations of abuse arise will ensure that your emotions don’t get in the way of your return to normalcy. A child abuse lawyer will guide and coach you on how and what to say, and perhaps more importantly, on what not to say while you are the subject of an investigation, to avoid self-incriminating behaviors or comments. 

 

Your child abuse lawyer knows the local court system.

Hiring a local child abuse attorney who knows the court system with jurisdiction over your area can be of benefit to you in a number of ways. As one example, if the removal of your child from your home is the result of a CPS investigation, a good child abuse attorney will know what to do to begin the work towards your child’s safe return home. There are many angles from which to try to fight improper removal by CPS. 

 

You need a strong advocate. A child abuse lawyer can be that for you.

Child abuse allegations are incredibly stigmatizing and abuse cases can be invasive and exhausting. No parent envisions themselves at the center of a child abuse investigation. Whether or not the allegations are true, it’s not uncommon for family and friends to begin to question you and your actions, or even for law enforcement to side with your child, regardless of whether or not there is substantiated evidence. For so many reasons, it’s imperative that you have a legal advocate who will stand in the ring and fight for you. A good child abuse lawyer will do just that.
