What If You Have Been Wrongfully Accused?

It is not uncommon for a parent or significant other to be accused of child abuse or sexual assault by the child following a scheduled parenting visit. It also frequently happens that someone familiar with the family claims he or she has knowledge of child abuse. In many cases, the child is pressed into making unintentional accusations when asked a series of questions designed to elicit a specific response. Once the child has indicated that some impropriety occurred during the visit, the professionals from the Florida Department of Children and Families get involved and social workers are required to follow through on the charges — often by threatening to remove the child from the parent.

We know what patterns to look for when interviewing the accuser. We are skilled in the ability to determine whether there is any basis for the accusations and whether charges should be dismissed or reduced.
