Various Abuse Charges Dismissed

Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.

JULY 2013

The Firm was successful in dismissing the Mother's frivolous Family Offense Petition filed in Family Court, wherein she alleged that Father was abusing the parties' two minor children and wherein the Court suspended Father's visitation at the time of filing of the Petition and until the investigation by Child Protective Services could be conducted. The parties have a long protracted and acrimonious history, wherein the Child Protective Services have investigated the Father on at least six (6) separate occasions. None of the reports were indicated against the Father and no suspected abuse has occurred. Mother has also filed multiple Petitions in Family Court in the past alleging abuse that were unsubstantiated as well. The firm was successful in dismissing the petition without conducting a hearing, obtaining an Order from the Court directing the Mother to undergo parent education programs and mandating the Mother to bring any future applications against the Father by Order to Show Cause and allowing the parties to appear in Court before any further temporary relief be granted.
