Magazine article / Expert opinion
When child sexual abuse allegations arise during custody disputes, matters can become complicated very quickly. Rightfully, such allegations must be taken seriously and addressed immediately. Should courts and Child Protective Services be more skeptical of sexual abuse allegations simply because there is an active custody dispute? Should any weight be given to the fact that the allegations of abuse were first raised only upon the initiation of divorce proceedings or a custody dispute?
