Child Abuse issues in Divorce

It may be unfortunate, but allegations of child abuse are fairly common in Arizona divorce proceedings.  This is due to the far-ranging definition of child abuse and the emotional power the child abuse accusation carries.  Child abuse can be anything from leaving a child unattended in a car to physically shaking or hitting the child, so it is important to have a knowledgeable divorce attorney on your side.  If the accusations are true the child needs to be protected, but if they are not, the mere accusation can cause irrevocable damage to a parent’s good name, not to mention the emotional scarring to both the parent and child.
