I am sure you will agree with me that allegations of child abuse are far too easy to make. It simply takes a phone call to Child Protective Services or law enforcement by someone using the right words to jumpstart an investigation that can take months or even years to resolve.
Because it is so easy for anyone to allege child abuse, it often makes law enforcement’s and CPS’s job difficult to determine true safety concerns from a bitter and angry ex making allegations. Add a custody or Nevada divorce proceeding to the mix, and Child Protective Services and law enforcement often become the star witnesses when allegations of abuse arise.
In our practice, we see child abuse allegations in divorce and custody cases almost daily. Whether it is an allegation that a parent neglected their child by allowing the baby to end up with diaper rash or whether it is an allegation of physical abuse with police involvement, child abuse allegations in divorce and custody cases are commonplace in Nevada.
In large part, allegations of child abuse arise in family court proceedings because of the broad definition of child abuse. Likewise, we also see claims of emotional abuse and medical neglect in divorce and custody proceedings due to the broad definitions of these terms too.
If the child abuse accusations are true then the child needs to be protected. If they are not, the false allegations of child abuse in divorce and custody proceedings can cause irrevocable damage to a parent’s good name, not to mention the emotional scarring to both the parent and child.
