Sadly, one of the situations that we see time and time again is when someone is falsely accused of some kind of abuse and it can happen for a variety of reasons. Most typically, it’s when one party is looking to gain an advantage in another proceeding, whether it be a divorce proceeding or a custody proceeding against another person. When they bring these charges, they figure that that can be used in the other proceedings. So if you’re falsely accused of domestic violence or some other kind of abuse, it’s all the more reason why it is crucial to have the right attorney in your corner to make sure that they properly deal with those accusations and do everything possible to get the charges dismissed.

Domestic violence victims deserve to be taken seriously. Unfortunately, some people undermine real victims by falsely alleging instances of domestic abuse.
