  How to Report Child Abuse

What do I do if I suspect abuse?

If a child discloses that he or she has been abused by someone, it is important that you listen to them most of all.

Report the abuse/suspicion of abuse:

  • Call the Child Abuse Hotline @ 1 (800) 252-5400 OR
  • File your report using a secure website: www.txabusehotline.org
  • If the child is in IMMEDIATE DANGER call 911 (caller can remain anonymous)

Your legal obligation:

Failure to report suspected child abuse or neglect is a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment of up to 180 days and/or a fine of up to $2,000 (Texas Family Code, Chapter 261)
