Weapons of Choice: Unfounded Allegations of Abuse To Gain Advantage

A problem is brewing just below the surface in family law.  This problem is immoral and stains the real stories of true victims.  It is zapping judicial resources to try to get at the heart of the truth.  These resources are being exhausted in an attempt to protect the real victims in search of the truth. However, to get to that point, these resources are sometimes used to dissect unnecessary lies.

One spouse may accuse the other spouse of domestic violence to have reason to get the other removed from the marital home. This spouse may be embellishing their story or completely lying to gain what they perceived to be an advantage for a future divorce The same may be said for parents. One parent may accuse the other of sexual or physical abuse of a child. This parent may be doing so to gain an advantage for a divorce and/or future custody case.

We, as a society, must come to a point where we question how far we will go in order to prevail? Are we willing to potentially ruin someone’s life in order to get what we want? These actions and lies are bigger than just “this divorce” or “this custody” case. We cannot get to the point where true victims are left without options, anyone to intervene, or resources because abuse will no longer be taken seriously.

Temporary Protective Orders in Georgia

Attorney Tiffany Lunn represents both alleged victims and alleged victimizers regarding Temporary Protective Orders.  Both parties must be diligent in taking action if abuse is alleged.  All alleged victims are not victims and all alleged victimizers are not falsely accused.  It is important that each takes the appropriate course so that they has the best chance possible in presenting the facts for the judge and the appropriate action can be taken.

When going to court for a Temporary Protection Order to be granted or denied, the parties must know  that other aspects of their lives may be affected by the Protection Order.  Attorney Tiffany Lunn has spoken with those either seeking an order of defending against an order that are not aware of how such an order may affect their lives.  Criminal implications and consequences can also affect and be affected by a Temporary Protection Order Hearing. Therefore, Attorney Tiffany Lunn believes preparation for the Temporary Protection Hearing can not be overlooked.

Attorney Tiffany Lunn advises that parties seek legal counsel early whether via private counsel or through an organization such as Legal Aid. Give your attorney enough time to prepare your case efficiently. Do not wait to the last minute for something so important.  There are various organization to assist, if money is a factor in any procrastination.  Stalking, violence and threats of violence (and allegations pertaining to them) are extremely serious.  Seek assistance.
