Dallas Child Abuse Lawyers

Caring Legal Representation for Parents in Need – (844) 451-1220

When a child is neglected, physically hurt, sexually exploited, or emotionally damaged, it is known as the crime of child abuse. Texas takes a strong stand against child abusers and penalizes them to the fullest extent of the law. Protecting your child from the harm caused by a partner, spouse, or another family member, however, first falls upon you.

If your spouse or partner is committing child abuse, come to Walters Gilbreath and our Dallas family lawyers right away. We can help you explore the options of getting a divorce, securing full child custody, and even filing a restraining order against the child abuser. To protect a child from harm is truly a noble act, and we do everything we can to fulfil it.

Contact us at your first chance to discuss how to stop and prevent child abuse.

Noticeable Signs of Child Abuse

In many cases of child abuse, the child does not know where to turn for help and stays quiet about the harm they are unduly suffering. This is a tragic situation that needs to be corrected through vigilance and care. If you think your child might be getting abused by your spouse or another person, then you have to keep your eyes open for signs of child abuse, rather than expecting your child to speak up and tell you directly.

A child who is being abused might exhibit the following symptoms:

  • Injuries that cannot or will not be explained to you
  • Dropping grades and attendance in school
  • Fear when around your spouse or the abuser
  • Depression or anxiety

You should also know that Texas law holds guardians, parents, and other adults close to a child accountable for reporting suspected child abuse. If you think your child has been harmed by an adult, then you need to seek help right away to avoid potential legal consequences for inaction. If your child is in immediate danger, call 911. Otherwise, dial 800-252-5400 to connect with the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) to report your suspicions.
