Why Use a Child Molestation Attorney?
There are reports every day of children being molested by a family member, a friend or a stranger. Generally by someone in a trusted position. If you are the parent or guardian of a child in this situation then you need to get help. In many of these cases a child molestation attorney is needed.
Father - This is a very difficult position for the molested child. This is incest, which is the biggest trust breaker of all. The child is bonded to him and the effects are extremely traumatic. The mother is also greatly affected.
- She needs to protect her child
- Her husband has broken her trust as well as her child’s
- She now has to make a major decision as to what she is going to do.
She can ignore the child’s needs, or she can leave her husband and get legal advice on how to,
- Get custody of her children, keeping them out of harms way
- Bring charges upon him
If you are the mother of a molested child, and you are here reading this then you obviously have the best interests of your child or children at heart.
Stepfather - If the stepfather has not been in the family long, the molested child will not have bonded too greatly with him. If the child has been growing up under his care for years, it becomes more difficult. The mother has come to rely on her husband for different reasons. It is difficult for her and she needs to make a decision.
- Her children need protecting, especially the child who has been molested.
- As long as the stepfather hasn't adopted her children, this is much easier than if he was the biological father. She will more than likely have no problems taking the children.
- She needs to get legal advice.
Mother/Stepmother - This is very rare, in fact a lot rarer than some would have you believe, though it does happen. The above advice will apply.
If your child has been molested by a friend, whether they be a priest, a teacher, a police officer or a neighbor, your child will not only be dealing with the effects of child sexual abuse. They have been betrayed by a person in a position of trust.
These are the most likely people to be involved if not a family member.
The mother and father however have a responsibility to provide protection for their molested child, as well as the rest of their children.
Get legal advice you will be better off.
