Child Abuse Defense in Ft Lauderdale, Florida

If you or a member of your family has been charged with any form of child abuse, it is important that you immediately contact an experienced Broward and Miami Criminal Defense Attorney. In the State of Florida, criminal offenses against children are treated very seriously. Aggravated child abuse, child abuse and child neglect all come with the potential for significant jail or prison time. You can be sure that the Department of Children and Family Services will become involved, taking the part of the civil side and petitioning both that children are removed permanently from parents’ care and that the parents’ rights are terminated. Hiring a skilled Child Abuse Defense Lawyer like Attorney Michael Salazar can make all the difference between losing custody of your children and having them remain in your life. It has been Fort Lauderdale Criminal Defense Attorney Michael Salazar’s experience that while some allegations of child abuse or child neglect may be true, many allegations are often unfounded, and sometimes they are completely fabricated.

You may have different option when charged with a Child Abuse offense, which may include:

  1. Pre-Trial Intervention (PTI)
  2. Plea to a withhold adjudication (no conviction)
  3. Getting the charge reduced
  4. Filing Motions to Dismiss and/or Suppress
  5. Going to Trial, either by Judge or Jury
