False and Fabricated Allegations

False allegations in family law can take many forms. What is common, however, is that they are damaging to families, devastating to you personally and could have a life-changing impact on you and your family. I have significant experience in defending false allegations and also in assisting families where there are justified and truthful allegations but the other party is claiming those to be false or fabricated.

These are some examples of when the issue of false allegations are raised in family law:
  • Domestic Abuse, Child Abuse. When relationships breakdown, people can display the worst side of themselves. Sometimes separating partners will even go as far as making false allegations of violence or abuse against their ex-partner (or extended family members/friends). Making malicious accusations can be an attempt to regain control, or simply a calculated act of revenge. I understand that false allegations do happen understand how important it is for you and your children that these allegations are defended and determined not to be true. Likewise, if a partner has behaved badly to their ex-partner or their children, they may be reluctant to admit it and claim your allegations are false – it is also important that allegations are determined as this may determine arrangements regarding your children
  • Have You Been Accused of Abusing or Injuring Your Child? If you have been accused of abusing or injuring your child, I can help. I have significant experience in complex care and non-accidental injury cases for many years and have formed excellent working relationships both with barristers and medical experts who specialize in these cases. I have had much success in securing a child’s return to their parents’ care.
Please read the cases I have been involved with and valued testimonials from clients and the barrister I instruct.

Please contact me to discuss your case in more detail or to instruct me to represent you. Often my clients have solicitors already instructed but are concerned that they do not have the expertise to deal with these complex and life-changing issues. I am happy to give a second opinion or take on your case.
