Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Family Law litigation attorney here to assist you.
Generally, spanking without injury is not considered child abuse in West Virginia. However, if there is some physical injury - such as bruising - it could be considered abuse.
Unfortunately, there's no bright line on this other than the issue of whether or not there's any injury.
Would be considered or wouldn't be considered?
