False accusations of domestic violence can have a profound impact on your life, reputation, and even your child custody rights. These serious allegations can create complications in both criminal and family law proceedings. If you’ve been falsely accused, our experienced attorneys at the Law Office of Mike Arnold are ready to defend your rights and reputation under Oregon law.
False Domestic Violence Accusations in Oregon
Under Oregon law, domestic violence, often referred to as Family Abuse Prevention Act (FAPA) Restraining Orders (ORS 107.710), is a serious crime that can lead to restraining orders, loss of child custody, criminal charges, and even jail time. However, false allegations of domestic violence are not uncommon in heated custody battles or contentious divorces.
Defending yourself against false accusations requires a solid understanding of Oregon’s domestic violence laws, evidence gathering, and an aggressive legal defense strategy.
The Impact on Child Custody
False domestic violence allegations can severely impact child custody arrangements. According to ORS 107.137, one of the considerations when determining the child’s best interest is any history of abuse by one parent against the other parent or the child. If a parent falsely accuses the other parent of abuse, it could influence the court’s custody decisions.
It’s important to respond swiftly and appropriately to false accusations. Our dedicated attorneys can help you navigate this complex process and protect your parental rights.
