False allegations may affect child custody decision

Florida parents may be able to recall a situation in which frustration was felt toward another parent or legal guardian. Though it might be tempting to dig up dirt or give a court reason to decide in your favor, parents should be aware that if allegations made during a child custody battle cannot be proven, it could potentially spell big trouble for the person that made the report. Even if a parent fears they may not get the arrangement they want, parents should let the courts decide what is best for a child based on provable facts.
