Psychology says going through a divorce is one of the most stressful life circumstances that anyone could ever go through, even more so than getting fired or laid off from a job, dealing with a personal injury or illness, or gaining or losing a family member. This information was found after a large-scale study.
What makes divorce cases even more stressful is dealing with a complex case involving spousal abuse, child custody, and/or a non-cooperative spouse. False allegations in a divorce case are also common and, surely, will also cause significant stress for the spouse being accused.
Examples of False Allegations in a Divorce Case
There are numerous things one can be falsely accused of during a divorce. These include, but are not limited to:
- Child abuse
- Domestic abuse
- Drug use/selling drugs
- Stealing from the other spouse
- Criminal violations
Although it is illegal to falsely accuse anyone of anything in the courtroom, false allegations are more common that one might realize. The important thing in these situations is to remain as calm as possible, tell your side to your story, and hire a Family Law attorney to help you.
How a Family Law Attorney Can Help with False Allegations
