Any allegation of child abuse is a serious matter. It can have long-lasting consequences, including a blemished criminal record, supervised probation, and no-contact order with family members. Additionally, it can have further career-threatening consequences when the State seeks to have the accused "substantiated" for child abuse, meaning potential permanent registration on the Delaware Child Abuse Registry.

Frequently, there are harmless explanations for the accusations. More often than not, many accusations are suspiciously raised for the first time once divorce and custody proceedings occur between parents.

Regardless of the circumstances, it is important to have skilled and experienced representation when facing any child abuse allegation. John Barber is experienced in handling all child abuse cases and Substantiation hearings. Call today for a free initial consultation.
