Received a Letter About ChildLine?

Reading Defense Lawyers on Your Side

Did you receive a letter in the mail, saying you have been indicated on ChildLine? If so, you need to take prompt action to protect yourself. This is a serious matter, and you only have 45 days to appeal. If you fail to appeal, you will be listed on ChildLine.

  • Essentially, being listed on ChildLine can prevent you from:
  • Participating in your child's school
  • Working in a daycare
  • Coaching Little League
  • Being a part of activities that involve children.

At Emkey Law Firm in Reading, we will file the appeal for you. We will also attend the hearing on your behalf. You can count on our Berks County attorneys to go the distance on your behalf. Our Reading criminal defense lawyers have years of experiencing handling these types of cases.

Guilty Until Proven Innocent

The ChildLine child abuse hotline is a program that operates through the Pennsylvania administrative court system, not the criminal court system. It involves a hearing before an administrative judge. Unlike in the criminal courts, you are not "innocent until proven guilty." Instead, ChildLine tends to treat people as if they are automatically guilty.

Getting listed on ChildLine can be as simple as having someone accuse you of touching them. Even if no criminal charges are filed, even if it's just "he said, she said," you are in danger. Take action.
