The impact of domestic violence allegations

We have written about some of the reasons why some fathers are falsely accused of domestic violence. In this post, we will take a closer look at the consequences of these allegations, regardless of whether or not they are true. Those who have been accused of domestic violence may face all sorts of hurdles in their personal and professional lives, and the impact of these allegations can be very damaging from a family law standpoint as well.

When someone is charged with domestic violence, they may become overly depressed and very upset with their former partner, which can lead to additional problems. Their performance at work may suffer and they may even have difficulty landing a job due to their shattered reputation. Aside from emotional difficulties and career problems, some may also struggle with adverse outcomes in court as a direct result of domestic violence accusations. For example, a father who has been accused of abusing someone in the family may not be able to secure custody or visitation.

Domestic violence allegations carry a brutal stigma and they can hold people back in many different ways. It is very unfortunate that some of these cases are based on details that are completely fabricated, and that some who have been falsely accused of domestic violence are never able to fully recover from the claims. Whether you have been accused of domestic violence or are facing some other serious legal problem involving your former spouse or family members, it is imperative to review your options.
