Nelson Law Roundup: 6 Useful Blog Posts About Family Violence, Child Abuse, & Neglect – Family Law is a specialized area of civil litigation and encompasses anything that has to do with the family relationship.

These scary, and at times life-threatening, situations and the emotional cases that follow happen more often than you think. The more we understand what family violence, child abuse, and neglect are, the easier it is to recognize and report.
Below is a roundup of 6 useful blog posts about family violence, child abuse, and neglect:
The ramifications of family violence are far-reaching, and for the victims, the emotional and physical ripple effects can be felt years down the road. This blog serves as a tool to define what family violence is and open our eyes to the fact that it encompasses a host of abusive, violent, and forceful acts by one family member against another.
As a society, we should feel compelled to report all instances of family violence, child abuse, and neglect. This blog post defines each of these terms while providing sobering statistics of the cases that do get reported. We also explain how you can report these acts to authorities.
In this blog article, we will focus on neglect. Furthermore, we will show you that abuse is abuse, no matter what form it takes. Neglect, in particular, can be equally or more harmful.
There are situations where acts of family violence go unreported, either because the victim is too scared to speak up, family and friends don’t get involved, or the victims don’t know their rights. This is where law enforcement can help.
We wrote about the investigative piece of a police officer’s duties, and now it’s time to go over the enforcement of protective orders, including those that were originally issued in another state.
