Child Abuse Allegations

Child abuse could consist of a range of illegal actions. It is illegal in New Jersey to inflict unnecessarily severe corporal punishment, or to inflict suffering or pain - either mental or physical. It is also illegal to put a child at substantial risk of injury. There are certain professionals that are required to report suspected child abuse, including teachers, doctors and others, and others can make anonymous reports though the Child Abuse Hotline.

Once the allegation of child abuse has been made, Child Protective Services will investigate and may remove your children from your custody, pending the investigation into whether you will be convicted of the allegations. It can be far easier to have your children taken from you than to get them returned to you, and during this period, the children can suffer great emotional distress. If you have been accused of child abuse in any form, whether cruelty, abandonment or any type of molestation or sexual abuse, it is imperative that you get legal representation immediately.

In charges of sexual abuse or molestation of a child, the penalties could include:

  • State prison
  • Fines
  • Mandated treatments

You can also lose custody and visitation rights of your child and will be required to register on the Sex Offender Registry, no matter which state you may move to, and you will be forced to re-register and check in with law enforcement frequently, provide DNA, photos and other personal data.

Being convicted of child abuse could permanently destroy your reputation, your standing in the community, and other ramifications. It is necessary to take immediate action in defending yourself from these allegations. Charges of child abuse can be filed not only in cases of physical abuse, but emotional abuse as well.

    "My case had a successful outcome."
    Ryan was compassionate, intelligent, efficient and thorough; he gave good advice, represented me in court, and was successful in winning a reduction in my property taxes. I wholeheartedly recommend him. I know he handles other types of cases as well.

    "Great job protecting my future"
    Ryan was a trusted adviser throughout the course of my legal issues. I was unfamiliar with legal proceedings and Ryan was able to explain to me my legal situation, and risks associated with various defenses and decisions I had to make. He took the time to explain all the scenarios to my satisfaction which gave me piece of mind and comfort. Ryan was also very responsive through various forms of communications (phone, email, text) which made keeping in contact convenient throughout the process. Ryan showed up on time (early in fact) to various appointments and appeared to handle relationship building effectively with opposing attorneys and the prosecutor. At the end of the day, I was very satisfied with the work done by Ryan as the outcome of my legal matter was better than I had expected and kept my reputation in tact, which undoubtedly will help me pursue my future career/professional ambitions.

    "Professionalism at its best"
    Mr. Gilbert has made my case easy and clear to understand without all the legal jargon. He took time to help me clearly understand my case and kept me updated with all occurrences. Also, the case had been postponed and he waited alongside and had a friendly chat at the nearby Starbucks and besides giving me a great case result, he made me feel as if I had someone by my side. Patient, honest, and soft spoken, Ryan is not someone else whom just told me what to do and I just say yes too, like previous attorneys I had. I will always suggest and use Ryan Gilbert as my attorney.
    - Former Client
    "Attentive, fast responding, professional, expert"
    Attentive, fast responding, professional and expert is how I would describe the attention and service that I received from Mr. Gilbert. He solved my matter quickly and explained in very clear terms each step and set expectation for action on all sides. I was very pleased with how my matter was resolved and would recommend Mr. Gilbert to those requiring legal services. If needed I would absolutely seek Mr. Gilbert's council again.
    - Former Client

    Mr. Gilbert is an excellent attorney. His knowledge and experience make him an invaluable asset to anyone looking for an attorney.

    "Ryan could not have been more helpful"
    I found myself in quite a situation and Ryan could not have been more helpful in my time of need. Ryan worked tirelessly and did whatever he could to secure for me the best possible outcome.
