False allegations of child abuse

There is nothing more frightening than a parent to claim child abuse against the other parent in a child custody dispute. Being falsely accused creates a very big challenge for the accused.

Courts err on the side of protecting children from alleged perpetrators. A parent who is falsely accused may end up with supervised visitation. This can be an uphill battle that never ends. False allegations can lead to parental alienation, causing the child to be caught in the middle of an ugly divorce.
