Las Vegas Child Abuse Attorney

Helping to Protect Children in Las Vegas, NV

According to the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act, close to 1,000,000 American children become victims of abuse and neglect per year. No matter where you are from or what circumstances you are involved in, there are few things more frightening and upsetting than suspecting that your child is being abused or neglected by a former or current spouse, another family member, or someone else.

What is Considered Child Neglect in Nevada?

Nevada law acknowledges 5 forms of abuse:

  • Physical abuse
  • Emotional abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Exploitation
  • Endangerment

A guardian who abuses a child may get a harsher sentence than the parent of that child. Repeat offenders with past child abuse convictions will also receive strict penalties under Nevada child abuse law.
