Sexual Abuse Allegations In Blended Families

As divorce, remarriage and blended families become increasingly common, our experienced legal team has seen a rise in sexual abuse allegations by children against new family members. Because these charges are so serious, most prosecutors, witnesses and other people involved will believe a child's allegations no matter what the facts say. At McGoughLaw P.C. L.L.O., we are fully devoted to uncovering the truth and protecting your interests.

The prosecution may bring in "expert witnesses" who will testify on your children's behalf or use suggestive questioning techniques to paint a picture that is false. Our lawyers understand these tactics and know how to defend against them. We will investigate all allegations of inappropriate contact, child sex abuse and any other accusations against you. We will review the evidence against you and search for every possible defense in your case. If there is a way to prove these allegations false, we will find it. We know what is at stake; we will fight for your rights and your future.

Why Would Children Lie About Sexual Abuse?

Dealing with a parent's divorce or new members of the family can be difficult for a child. Feeling threatened or just confused, a child may make allegations against a person in an attempt to get them out of the picture. Or the child may make an off-the-cuff comment on social media that spins out of control.

Children are extremely vulnerable and susceptible, often trying to please the adults in their lives. For this reason, a child may become confused during questioning or try to tell an adult what he or she wants to hear. This can lead to inconsistencies in the child's story or even false allegations of abuse. In addition, the child may fear that telling the truth will get him or her into trouble for lying in the first place.

At McGoughLaw P.C. L.L.O., we do not accept bad results for our clients based on false allegations. We are skilled investigators and experienced interviewers with a history of exposing false allegations. We can determine whether someone has lied about such allegations, then take the appropriate steps to pursue the best outcome for our clients.
