At the Land Legal Group, our Los Angeles, California family law attorney knows that divorce proceedings can take an unexpected turn at any time, as each parent tries to gain an upper hand in their bid to control the custody of their children.
Child custody is an important factor during divorce discussions, negotiations, mediation, and even trial in Los Angeles County, and while it is important to have an attorney by your side for each component of time-sharing and parental control, it is even more important when one parent alleges the other is abusive, neglectful, or incapable of taking care of the child because of a dependency issue.
What’s worse is when one parent makes those damaging allegations — knowing they are completely false.
What If I Am Falsely Accused of Endangering the Welfare of My Child?
When couples are divorcing, emotions run high and become even more adversarial when children are involved. Part of the equation is that each parent loves their children so much they can’t bear to split their time with the other parent.
Unfortunately, sometimes this emotion can be embellished by untrue accusations, including allegations of physical or sexual abuse, neglect, or previous occasions of domestic violence within the marriage.
These allegations make for powerful statements during divorce proceedings, and the unfair truth is that we will more than likely have to prove that our clients are not hurting their children —instead of the other parent having to prove that s/he is endangering them.
At the Land Legal Group, our child custody attorney in Los Angeles can help you face these allegations with confidence, so you can focus on receiving a fair outcome inside or outside of the courtroom.
What’s more is that once we are able to prove your spouse was untruthful about these allegations, we will pursue each statute of our California Family Laws to ensure s/he is liable for the damages caused, which can also include recovering your legal fees.
