Our law firm understands the variety of complex issues that can arise when it comes to domestic violence cases. On the one hand, victims may suffer at the hands of an abuser or fear that their children are being abused. Domestic violence is an area of family law that can be especially emotional and it is pivotal for those affected by this matter to carefully assess their rights and options. However, we also are aware that some people in Texas have been falsely accused of domestic violence. In fact, these false allegations can also be incredibly upsetting and disruptive.
When a couple ends their marriage, one party may wrongly accuse the other of domestic violence for different reasons. In some instances, this may be an attempt to get even or cause hardships for the other party. However, there are other potential motivations which can have a significant impact on the outcome of a divorce case. For example, someone may wish to interfere with their spouse's ability to have shared custody or visitation rights.
From negatively affecting family law cases to a ruined reputation and problems with employment, there are many ways in which untrue domestic violence claims can thoroughly upend your life. If your former or current partner has falsely claimed that you are responsible for domestic violence, you should assess your options and be prepared to protect your rights and future.
