How Child Abuse is Classified

You might consider yourself a role model parent and still be accused of child abuse due to some form of misunderstanding. The truth is child abuse can be classified in a number of different ways. Outside parties who know about your relationship with your child can misinterpret your parenting methods and accuse you of child abuse.

Child abuse can be classified in many forms, such as:

Defense Against False Child Abuse Charges

Many child abuse accusations that lead to charges are entirely false and brought forth by a family member, typically a spouse. Why would your own spouse want to falsely accuse you, though? The truth is they might be trying to take child custody from you by any means necessary.

When someone is accused of child abuse, family law courts will want to remove child custody rights from them as soon as possible, just in case the accusations are true. There does not need to be an actual conviction of child abuse for a family law court to authorize the removal of parental rights. With this in mind, a dishonest spouse may make false accusations of child abuse to gain an immediate advantage in any pending divorce cases or child custody disputes.
