Defending Orders Of Protection For Those Wrongly Accused
The Department of Social Services exists to protect people from abusive and unsafe living conditions. When used correctly, they keep parties away from abusive partners. Unfortunately, the system is not perfect, and people can be wrongly accused.

Orders Of Protection Restrictions
If a man or woman goes to the Department of Social Services (DSS) and claims their spouse abused or threatened to abuse them, they may receive protection. If DSS takes the case, the nonaccused parent could receive full child custody and visitation rights to their children. The parent who is wrongly accused of the crime can be subjected to orders of protection, including but not limited to:
• A loss of parenting time
• Being prohibited from carrying a gun, even for work
• Restricted interactions with all children, including working as a bus driver or teacher
These restrictions make sense for someone who is guilty, but they are not appropriate for someone who has been wrongly accused.

Domestic violence is a serious issue for many families, but there are times when a party will bring false accusations of abuse to manipulate their way through the legal system. As a former prosecutor, I know how the system works and how it can seem to be stacked against the accused.
