The issue of child abuse has been a growing concern. Unfortunately, while there are children who are in danger of being harmed by their care providers, there are also families who have been traumatized by false child abuse allegations.

The vast majority of parents work diligently to ensure that their children are cared for and are protected.

California parents who believe their rights have not been protected may seek assistance from a family law attorney.

When the recent story broke about the family who purportedly starved their 13 children and chained them to beds, many officials turned their scrutiny on families who choose to educate their children at home.
