The Oxford Introductions to U.S. Law

Brian H. Bix

This chapter examines the doctrines of abuse and neglect, two categories of criminal liability and civil liability terms for when children can be taken from their parents. It begins with an overview of standards for abuse and neglect before turning to culture and religion as defenses against claims of abuse and neglect. It then considers procedural protections to parties who are facing termination of their parental rights and concludes by explaining foster care within the context of family law and practice.

Keywords:   abuse, neglect, criminal liability, civil liability, children, parents, culture, religion, foster care, family law
