False Abuse Claims and Custody

I have seen fewer allegations of child abuse claims over the past few years, but False Abuse Claims and Interference With Visitation Leads to Loss of Custody from New York Divorce Report still hits hard. I cannot think of anything uglier to raise in a child custody case than a false abuse claim. I do not think that Indiana courts will treat a false claim any differently than did the New York courts.

False abuse claims cheapen the cases where abuse did occur. If for no other reason, the courts should react strongly to false abuse claims.

False abuse claims also brings to mind parental alienation syndrome. For more on that see my earlier post, Contentious divorces - Parental Alienation Syndrome.
