Child custody situation in another state headed for jury trial

Many Kansas parents are currently facing problems with co-parents regarding visitation, support or custody issues. Child custody situations are often complex, and various types of extenuating circumstances can complicate matters even further. For instance, if one parent accuses the other of abuse, the court may need to investigate the situation before it can hand down a ruling.

A woman in another state claims that she was the victim of false allegations of abuse. She says the father of her children convinced a sheriff's deputy to arrest her and accuse her of child abuse. She was taken into police custody after an incident that involved one of her children being taken to a hospital emergency room. Hospital records state that the child in question did not show any external signs of injury; however, the deputy who obtained an arrest warrant testified that records showed a minor head wound.

The woman was held in a county jail on a $20,000 bond. The father of her two children reportedly has worked as a confidential informant in the police officer's work, and she says they are close friends and the deputy is abusing his position to help the father of two gain an upper-hand in their child custody battle. A jury trial has been scheduled to get to the bottom of the matter.

It is definitely illegal to give false information about child custody issues. Any Kansas parent who believes he or she has been falsely accused of substance or physical abuse can move to rectify the situation through the family justice system. An experienced family law attorney would know the best course of action to take.
