Woman convicted for telling girl to lie in a family law matter

When parents are caught up in a child custody dispute, they often struggle to resolve their conflict. At times, parents have been known to make false allegations against the other in order to try and sway a family law judge to change custody orders. California parents who find themselves involved in a contentious dispute may seek the support of professionals.

Recently, a woman was convicted for her role in concocting a story of child molestation in an effort to have her boyfriend awarded custody of his daughter. According to the officials, she and the father decided to convince his 6-year-old daughter to lie about her mother's boyfriend having had criminal physical contact with her. According to the father's initial story, his girlfriend approached him at a restaurant and reported that his daughter had information she wanted to share with him.

The man stated that he was not aware of what his child wanted to tell him, but he decided to record the conversation supposedly for personal reasons. Once the girl told her story, the couple took her for a medical examination for evidence. At some point, the girl related to officials that she lied about what happened because the couple asked her to and because she purportedly wished to reside with her father full time.

Officials stated that, in spite of the girl alleging that she had been molested, her father did not display any strong emotions over the accusations. He later worked with authorities against the woman who was convicted on several counts of making false child abuse reports. The father also faces sentencing for his role in the allegations. California parents who find themselves facing false child abuse claims understandably suffer anxiety and apprehension over the possible consequences. They are entitled to consult with a compassionate and experienced attorney who can provide assistance in combating these allegations in the family law courts.
