Falsified Claims of Domestic Violence
Whenever we hear from a client who has been accused of domestic violence, the first thing that comes to our minds is wondering if someone would lie about domestic violence for some personal gain. As unthinkable as it might seem, some dishonest spouses and family members fabricate or exaggerate stories of domestic violence out of spite. This is common in family law cases involving child custody. A spouse who wants to ensure they get parenting time and their ex-spouse does not can tell the authorities a false tale of domestic violence and practically ensure a family law judge will rule in their favor.
It is our top objective to make certain you are not subjected to unfair punishments that originate from falsified accusations of domestic violence. Using our investigative skills and history of handling complex divorce cases, our Lackawanna County attorneys are capable of seeking out evidence to use in your defense, no matter where it might be found.
