Have you been charged with child neglect?

Child neglect is a form of child abuse that includes negligent treatment of a child by any person responsible for the child's welfare, including a parent, legal guardian or caregiver. If you have been charged with child neglect, contact a Riverside domestic violence lawyer for reliable legal advice. This is a serious offense that can result in harsh penalties if you are found guilty of the charges.
