Child Abuse and Neglect Basics Under New York State Law

The state takes any allegation of child abuse or neglect very seriously, and such allegations are grounds for the state to interfere with your parental rights. If a parent fails to meet the responsibility that comes with ensuring a child’s physical and emotional wellbeing, New York State has the right to intervene as a matter of public policy. Allegations of child abuse and/or neglect are very serious matters, and it is important that you have professional legal representation from a lawyer who is well-versed in these types of matters.
Even the best parents can be falsely accused of child abuse or neglect. While not substantiated, an allegation from a former spouse, another parent, significant other, family member, or neighbor can have severe negative impacts on a person’s life. These charges are serious and should not be taken lightly, even when you know the accusation is untrue.
Our child abuse and neglect lawyers in White Plains can help in a variety of situations, including:

  • You and/or your partner have been accused of child abuse/neglect by Child Protective Services or the State has brought an Article 10 lawsuit against you in Family Court.
  • You have not been accused but are named as an “interested party” in a child abuse/neglect case by Child Protective Services (CPS) or the Department of Social Services (DSS).
  • Your child has been removed from the primary caretaker after charges of abuse or neglect, and you are seeking temporary custody of the child.

Child abuse and neglect can take many forms. Child abuse is any act that endangers or impairs a child’s well-being and can be in the form of emotional abuse, sexual abuse, physical abuse, or psychological abuse. Neglect refers to any act that deprives a child of their basic essential needs. As with abuse, there are different types of neglect, including physical, medical, educational, emotional, and even a lack of supervision.
