Child Molestation: The Intersection Of Family Law And Criminal Defense
Child molestation allegations often arise in the family law context — for example, during a divorce one parent may be wrongfully accused by the other to gain leverage in child custody proceedings. If you have been wrongfully accused, you may lose custody of your children. This is unfair to you and to your children.
We are firmly committed to the belief children deserve access to both parents unless there are serious extenuating circumstances. We protect fathers’ rights in the family law context, including fathers who have been wrongfully accused of child molestation.
This is more than just a family law matter though — sexual assault of any form is a serious accusation with serious consequences. If you have been accused of child molestation, defense is critical. If convicted, you may face jail time and have to register as a convicted sex offender.
In addition to representing parents who have been accused of child molestation, we represent nurses, day care providers and babysitters. Children have wild imaginations — and care providers are often wrongfully accused of abuse when nervous parents misinterpret statements by their children.
