Firm Overview

Dealing with wrongful allegations

It is common for a former partner to make wrongful child abuse accusations against their ex, especially in child custody battles. Although it is illegal to make wrongful claims, it can be dangerous because it can be difficult for the courts to determine what is true. If you have been the victim of wrongful accusations, then you should take such charges very seriously and make sure to take action immediately.

Each accusation will be thoroughly investigated

If you are innocent, then it is likely that you have nothing to worry about because each case will be investigated by a judge. It is important to make sure that you have a good record and documentation of a great relationship with your children. It is also a good idea to look into defense options so that you are fully protected against the proceedings that could take place.

Comply with the investigation

Although you may feel you have been treated as though you are guilty, a full investigation is the only thing that will be able to prove your innocence. Therefore, it is important to comply with everything that the investigation asks of you.

Getting custody of your children

The problem with such claims is that even if no proof is found, the judge may be extra cautious and may not grant you with custody of your children. Judges always rule in the child's best interests; however, it is important for both parents to have access to their children if it is safe and possible. Therefore, it is important to make a custody appeal if you are victim of a wrongful allegation.
