Domestic violence charges and child custody

On Behalf of | Jul 9, 2020 | Firm News

On our blog, we have covered some of the reasons why people accuse others of domestic violence (even though these allegations are completely baseless, in some instances). Child custody is one of the most common reasons why people come up with false domestic violence accusations, whether they want to gain the upper hand in a custody dispute or get revenge against their former partner because they are unhappy with a custody decision.

If you are facing domestic violence charges and you are a parent, it is critical to understand how this case will affect you in terms of custody. Even if you are not dealing with a custody dispute at the current time, you need to understand how these charges will potentially impact your custody rights in the future.

Handling false accusations

If you are falsely accused of domestic violence, you need to thoroughly prepare for court and defend yourself. Have a clear understanding of your legal options and take steps to improve your odds of a favorable outcome. Recognize certain details that will help you prove your innocence and protect your ability to maintain a healthy relationship with your child. Aside from custody matters, domestic violence cases impact many other facets of one’s life and it is crucial to prepare.

From eyewitness testimony to recordings that prove the allegations are false, there are various forms of evidence that people use to defend themselves against these allegations.
