California Child Abuse Index Laws

Suspected of Child Abuse or Child Neglect in California and Your Name On The Child Abuse Central Index Report

Are you being accused, investigated, or charged with any type of child abuse or neglect? Or are you a day care provider or foster care parent who has recently been accused of child abuse or neglect? If you have been, then your name may be listed on the Child Abuse Central Index Report (CACI). Even if the accusations are false & untrue, and in many cases where charges are never filed or you are found not guilty in court, you may still be listed and not removed from this California child abuse index. And if you are a day care provider or foster care parent, you could lose your license, therefore your livelihood, due to being placed on this list.

Yes, you are entitled to a grievance hearing to have your name removed from the list, but you will need an experienced attorney that can represent you in both matters. At Wallin & Klarich we have family law attorneys in California that are capable of handling both of those matters for you. It is always better to have one attorney assist you in both matters, because they know your case and they know you.

So, once you have been contacted by an officer or investigator from any agency (i.e. social services, District Attorney’s Office, etc.) or if you have already been arrested for any type of child abuse or neglect, contact our office before making any statements, and let us assist you in this matter. Because again it is not only the criminal courts you must deal with. Therefore, let us help you by contacting one of our knowledgeable Wallin & Klarich Los Angeles criminal defense attorneys at 888-749-0034 and visit us at
