FALSE ACCUSATIONS OF CHILD ABUSE

Parents who are falsely accused of child abuse may often feel distressed and powerless. Allegations of child abuse quickly turn into “he said – she said” situations making it difficult to sift out the truth. Given that there are strong legal penalties in place for the person making the false accusations, such as having to pay hefty monetary sanctions or limited child visitations. Nonetheless, it is a common occurrence especially in divorce and child custody battles, where an embittered parent will accuse the other of child neglect or abuse to defame the other parent’s character and gain the empathy of the court. False accusations of child abuse can also be made by mistaken neighbors or teachers.
