I overheard someone wanting to file child abuse because of false assumptions on behalf of the bruises found on the child’s body and I’m just wondering if it’s still possible to file child abuse (Through CPS) if it’s been a month since the abuse has occurred .
As a side note , can you still file for child abuse if the evidence isn’t fresh ?
CPS has a serious responsibility in detecting and preventing child abuse.
