Shazam Kianpour & Associates, P.C., understands that parents accused of child abuse or neglect are not bad, violent people in most cases. Child abuse charges may be false or based on incorrect assumptions. Just as in assault cases, a person can be charged even if there is no record of abuse or actual physical contact.
Good people who are caught up in a misunderstanding can still be convicted of child abuse or neglect. A simple mistake can result in a criminal record and the state taking your kids away. Contact a Denver child abuse defense lawyer who will fight for your rights and fight to keep your family together.

Many parents do not realize that getting a DUI with their children in the car is child abuse under the law. Parents also face child abuse or neglect charges if they are arrested for use or possession of marijuana or other illegal drugs in their homes when their children are present. In this case, a parent might also be charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor, which is a felony.
Child abuse has a very broad definition under Colorado law, and parents can face misdemeanor or felony child abuse charges. Allegations almost always result in a visit by social services, which could mean that your children will be taken away from you.
