In most cases, CYFD does all they can to protect the identity of the person who reports suspected abuse or neglect. It is often encouraged to divulge information about yourself when reporting suspected abuse so that law enforcement and CYFD has information that helps with their investigation. Sometimes the alleged abuser is able to find out who the caller to CYFD is. There are also rare cases where the caller might be required to testify. If you are calling to report abuse or neglect to CYFD, it can be a good idea to consult with an Albuquerque family law lawyer.
At Cortez & Hoskovec, LLC, we can help people who are reporting abuse. It can be very helpful to have effective representation if you end up being called to testify in the criminal case. Our team only works on cases related to family law and can provide you with valuable legal insight.
