Child abuse or neglect has not necessarily occurred each time such accusations are leveled. Accusations of child abuse are frequently made between divorcing couples when one spouse seeks to keep the other spouse from having child custody. Law enforcement and the courts take such accusations very seriously. They have been known to thoroughly investigate a case of child abuse or neglect based solely on the word of one spouse. Often, there’s no evidence to back up the accusation, but the mere suggestion of such a crime is enough to tarnish a person’s reputation for years to come.
