You Need to Collect Evidence to Prove Yourself Innocent
Video Transcribed: Hello, my name is Attorney Jason Lile, and I am a father’s rights attorney in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
I wanted to address a situation that I hear a lot from my male clients, and that’s, “I’ve been falsely accused of” fill in the blank. It can be as serious as child molestation or child abuse. It can be as mediocre, as far as seriousness goes, as drug or alcohol abuse, or it can be as less serious as not paying child support. I grade those on seriousness, as far as potential for criminal charges, but in reality, they’re all serious in the sense that it’s something that a family law court can weigh, for you or against you, when it comes to what it should do with regard to custody of your child or children, or how much time you should have with your child or children. So, what can you do if you feel like you’ve been falsely accused of something?
Well, you’re on the right track by consulting an attorney, because an attorney, an experienced family law attorney, in particular, should be able to tell you what kind of evidence you need to have been collecting, to be gathering, to be organizing for the lawyer to successfully defend you against those false accusations in court. The lawyer should be able to tell you the difference between that just coming out of someone’s mouth that you did this or did that, and actually having it in a court pleading. If it’s not in a court pleading, it might not matter, and that lawyer should help you prepare for court properly as to how to defend yourself from those accusations so that you have a successful outcome, as successful as can be in your custody and visitation issue.
So, all of those things require an experienced family law lawyer, someone who’s experienced with trial and evidence procedure, and fortunately, I am just such a lawyer.
