Has Your Child Been Abused Or Neglected At A Church-Owned Facility?

Whatever your level of involvement in church — whether you attend weekly or are heavily into church functions — you trust your church, your pastor and the entire congregation. For many, church is a place of worship, a home away from home, a place of comfort and guidance.

What happens, then, when you find out your child was abused while in the care of the church? What are your legal rights as parents of an abused or neglected child? The Virginia family attorneys at The Law Offices of Locklin & Coleman, PLLC, in Manassas have been helping families since 1982. We can talk to you about answers to these questions in a free and confidential consultation. We can learn more about what occurred and talk to you about your next steps.
