Also, it is important to consider the history of domestic violence when making parenting and child support plans.

In this case, the most important thing is to protect your interests and reputation and make sure these false allegations don’t hinder your time with your children.
Regardless of which side you are on, WE ARE ON YOUR SIDE. Attorney Kaplan and our legal team can help you get the legal protection you need.
