Protecting yourself against false domestic violence accusations

When it comes to child custody, visitation, and other facets of fathers' rights, there are many issues to consider. For some, untrue domestic violence allegations are extremely problematic and can interfere with their ability to see their children. Moreover, these charges can affect a father's life in many other ways, from creating career-related problems (the loss of a job, difficulty landing a new position) to financial issues and a shattered reputation. If you have been falsely accused of domestic violence and are worried about your future, our firm knows how pivotal it is to take steps to protect yourself.

Unfortunately, there are all sorts of reasons why people may find themselves accused of domestic violence over allegations that are exaggerated or completely false. For example, a former spouse or partner may wish to exact revenge or they could accuse their child's other parent of domestic violence in an attempt to win a custody battle. These allegations can be incredibly difficult for those facing charges to deal with, as well as children. However, it is crucial to take a close look at the various details surrounding your case and take steps to prevent these allegations from damaging your life and reputation further.

Regrettably, false allegations and other family law problems have resulted in some parents losing the ability to spend time with their child, which can be devastating. If you make your way to our fathers' rights section, you will have the opportunity to view more material related to this family law topic.
