Reporting Child Abuse - New Mexico

NEW MEXICO

Under New Mexico law, every person, including certain listed professionals, who knows of, or reasonably suspects, child abuse or neglect is required to immediately make a report of that abuse to a local law enforcement agency, the Department of Children, Youth and Families or to a tribal law enforcement or social services agency.

Child abuse is defined to include physical, mental, sexual abuse or neglect.

Links to the specific sections of the official New Mexico Code online are not available. The mandatory child abuse reporting act is located in Chapter 32A (Children’s Code), Subtitle 4 (Child Abuse and Neglect), Sections 32A-4-1 through 32A-4-34.
