Wrongful Accusations of Abuse

It’s the last refuge of a scoundrel — false allegations of abuse. However untrue, these types of allegations can have serious effects and consequences if you don’t fiercely defend yourself. If wrongful allegations of abuse are being used as grounds for modification of child custody or visitation, you need to act aggressively to investigate and expose the untrue nature of the allegations and impeach the credibility of the accusing spouse.

At the New Albany law office of Stanley E. Robison, Jr., our Indiana wrongfully accused of child abuse defense attorney stands ready to defend the rights of fathers against wrongful allegations of abuse. Even a minor accusation can quickly snowball into a major problem. If you are being wrongfully accused of domestic abuse, contact us today for immediate advice.

Post-decree Modifications

Court orders for child support, spousal support, child custody and visitation are not set in stone – they can be changed and modified as circumstances change.

At the Law Office of Stanley E. Robison, Jr., our Indiana attorneys are dedicated to helping fathers get fair consideration from the courts when it comes to modifying these important matters. Contact our Indiana Child Custody Modification Attorney today for wise advice and skilled representation from an experienced attorney with a passion for defending the rights of fathers.

Indiana courts have the power to order changes in visitation, changes in child support, or changes in child custody in response to changes in circumstances. While many petitions for modifications to court orders are in response to legitimate changes, many others are the result of vendetta. We are here to make sure that doesn’t happen to you. Some women are not above using the children as pawns to get back at their ex, and will even go so far as to make wrongful accusations of abuse in order to bolster a claim for change in custody or visitation. We think that is deplorable and we will help you fight the accusations every step of the way.
