Domestic Abuse Is A Life Changing Allegation

At Gary Greenwald & Partners P.C., we understand that couples fight. But when tempers flare to the point of hitting, allegations of domestic violence are soon to follow.

For those facing domestic violence accusations, the road ahead is a long and challenging one. In addition to fighting back against the criminal charges against them, an individual may also face increased scrutiny by police, friends, family and the community. This scrutiny can easily damage a person's reputation, possibly causing them to lose their job, get kicked out of their home or lose custody of their child.

Domestic Violence And Child Custody

Though many cases of domestic violence may have merit, there are some allegations of abuse that are made out of spite and have no merit. Typically seen in divorce and separation cases, a parent may accuse the other parent of abuse simply to gain leverage in a child custody matter.

Unfortunately, these allegations are taken incredibly seriously by police, prosecutors and the courts. A parent falsely accused of committing domestic violence could easily find themselves facing criminal proceedings as well as civil proceedings, simply because of someone else's malice.
