Wrongful Accusations in a Divorce
Allegations of domestic abuse or violence during divorce proceedings can seriously impact your case, as well as your emotions, and even your job. Wrongful accusations can affect your divorce proceedings and may even be a cause for criminal defense. The most important factors are to check your emotions. You don't want to be prevented from seeing your children. And, you don't want it affecting your job.
Let your attorney handle any potential conflict with your soon-to-be ex-spouse. Keep careful notes of every interaction. As soon as they raise any potential accusation remove yourself from the situation and call your attorney. We want to avoid any order of protection including no-contact orders. Even asking a friend or relative to talk with your spouse about the divorce could land you in jail.
If you have been accused of domestic violence or abuse in conjunction with a divorce or child custody proceeding, you need the skill of a knowledgeable and experienced attorney who can protect your rights.
