For fathers, there are many different family law challenges that can surface. As if the divorce process is not difficult enough, both in terms of its emotional toll and the financial consequences, many fathers have been unable to spend much time with their children afterward. Moreover, some have faced immense challenges related to false allegations, such as claims of domestic violence. It is essential for fathers in Peoria and all over the state of Illinois to stand up for themselves if they believe their legal rights have been violated. However, our law office also realizes how challenging this can be.
A father’s reputation may be shattered as a result of completely fabricated accusations that were intended to exact revenge or win a custody dispute. Fathers may not only struggle with negative emotions due to their divorce, but they may even run into problems with friends, family members and acquaintances. You should protect your reputation if you are a father who is going through divorce or recently split up with your spouse and are concerned about your former partner’s lies.
When a parent’s reputation is tarnished due to false accusations of family violence or sexual assault, this can adversely impact their ability to gain custody of their child. Many fathers have had their lives shattered due to these challenges and we believe that anyone who has been through this nightmare deserves justice.
