Choose an attorney that has the courage to speak up for your child. Do not compensate them unless they are willing to advocate for your child. Too many attorneys just want the money and not the mission - saving children. Choose an attorney that has the courage of their convictions.
And, please be consistent when talking with your attorney. Do not send mixed signals. It may be difficult to let go of past affections for an ex-spouse or a desire to protect the spouse and your child. Child abuse is embarrassing, but let the shame be that of the perpetrator.
Remember your attorney cannot protect, you, your child, and the alleged perpetrator all at the same time.
Your child will lose out, if you are not persistent and consistent.
Be clear that your role is a protector of your child. This is your mission as a parent or caregiver.
Be your child's advocate and ask your attorney to be the child's voice in the courtroom. A fair-minded judge or magistrate will hear the convictions of a determined child advocate.
Speak up LOUDLY and CLEARLY.
