Being Falsely Accused of Child Abuse

By: Lorna Elliott LLB (hons), Barrister - Updated: 14 Aug 2019 |
 
Accused Child Abuse Social Services

If you are accused of child abuse, whether sexual or violent in nature, or abuse that is supposed to have occurred in front of your children, you may find yourself on the receiving end of a ‘visit’ from Social Services, which may seem casual and friendly but is actually recorded on a computer and remains on a social services file indefinitely.

If Social Services decide not to do anything about it, there will be ‘no action taken’. It is well worth checking what is on the file in these circumstances to make sure that what has been recorded is accurate. You are unlikely to get an apology or thanks for your cooperation.

Further Action

If Social Services decide that they need to take further action, they can hold a ‘core assessment’ meeting where they can direct you to do certain things as a parent. Your child could be put on the ‘at risk’ register. If this happens, it could be that your authority over your child’s welfare may be shared with Social Services, or your child could be taken into care, or adopted into another family.

Your Child’s File

Whatever information is on file about your child, it can be seen by medical professionals, health visitors, teachers and school staff, housing authorities, police, public and some voluntary workers who have contact with children, and youth workers. That is why it is important to ensure that whatever is recorded is correct.

The Meeting With Social Services

Although this is often sold to people as ‘a little chat’, you should NOT treat it as such. Make sure you bring someone with you who you know and trust as a witness, and make sure you tape record the meeting. Ask everyone there whether they have any objection to you recording the meeting – they should not. Use a ‘conference microphone’ so that you get a clear definition of what everyone says. If you know what the meeting is going to be about, bring any documentation that you think will help. No matter how nice they are to you, remember they are there to do a job – which is to see whether you are an unfit parent or not. They are not paid to be kind to you.

The Good News

As public bodies are terrified of being lambasted in the media, they can have a tendency to over-react to any kind of concern expressed over a child’s welfare. There does not have to be strong evidence in order to trigger a referral to Social Services. Sometimes it is simply an opinion, a suspicion, or an impression that a public employee has, although there are rules and concerns must be ‘evidence based.’

Although this might seem shocking, a considerable number of referrals to Social Services are not investigated at all because they are deemed to be without merit. Although figures vary between local authorities, those that are not investigated at all amount to around 55% of all referrals. If there is genuinely nothing wrong, and the referral has been made mistakenly, or maliciously, just make sure you take the precautions described above. Act professionally, tell the truth and make sure that you do not say anything even in jest that could be misinterpreted.

False accusations are not uncommon where one partner is looking for ways to 'punish' the other. It's not always accusations of child abuse either...often an ex will falsely accuse you of domestic violence or even rape. Our articles:
Being Falsely Accused of Domestic Abuse
and
Being Falsely Accused of Rape
offer some advice about what to do in those situations.

My spouse of 5 years whom ive known for 14 years is being accused by his daughter for inappropriately touching her while tickling. Mother blew it up with no detail so to get ahead of this we called cps on ourselves. Now my spouse has been fired and i have been suspended from my job till pending legal services can advise my return to work. This mother is upset because my spouse got clean from drugs and started turning his life around with me and started seeing his daughter when we refused to give her $ on the side anymore instead of paying child support she with held the child we called cps for parent alienation abuse neglect and drug abuse info we gathered over the years and from the child the weekend before she took her. We filed motions were granted 50/50 custody. Mom then continuesly violated the order for parenting time weather ditching or keeping the child off schedule. We argued about it and then 5 days later she sent a text accusing him of inappropriate touching. 24 hours later she decided to state his daughters detailed accusations. Then started apologizing for mishandling after confronted. Now she is back and forth.

My ex partner also has been making up false allegations for the last 4 years.I've had social checks and spot on check by police which have all been okay. I originally had a non-molestation order which ran out some time ago. He's had harrassment warning from police, our sons pre school rang 999 previously because father was trying to abduct him and I had a court order which stated to be one of my days. In February 2019 my sons father refused to return him after a handover. I applied for a court hearing to get him back but unfortunately more accusations were made up and it took 3 months to get a hearing. Within 4 months I saw my son once in a contact centre and my son and other siblings never got to see one another once during this period. My ex partner breached many orders prior this too. I've done nothing to be nasty towards him and I just do not get why he is doing this. My poor baby is stuck in the middle too. I have shown all evidence but somehow he has now been granted for our son to live with him? No one wants to help unless it's for big bucks which I do not have and I really don't know where to go. I don't have social as they won't stay and police/other organisations are telling me there is not much they can do due to it being a civil matter. Another thing everything I said got twisted and why are family courts so private.. I believe there maybe something more to this case as I had many child workers backing me. And rather then sticking to the evidence the judge has put in what she 'believes could or could not be true! Please help

Ex has reported me to the social service due to something my 3 and half said reference a photo. I am completely innocent and have nothing to hide. My ex is trying to win full custody and pin made up events to make me out to be someone I'm not. This isn't the first time either. I'm worried for my daughters well being as this plotting, putting her through interrogations, examinations will have a massive effect on her later on in life. I'm currently now wanting on the social services which have passed the details on to the MASH team. Whom have done so to the police. What advise can anyone offer? How do I act on this legally? When will I get to see my daughter?
Wronglyaccused - 6-Mar-19 @ 9:34 AM
@Jjj2018 You should file a false 498a case against your partner for wrong accusations against you plus you can file defamation case to spoil your reputation. If you'll able to prove yourself, there are high chances that you'll get custody of your child.

If my child is at child protection status for emotional abuse, am I entitled to legal aid? To minimise disruption to my daughter I left the family home over 2 years back, my money is tied up so am currently representing myself. My ex had a new partner move into the jointly owned home in july and was also pregnant. She asked my daughter if I ever touched her, the social services and police spoke to my daughter and did not further investigate. I myself was never questioned. Despite this my ex stopped all contact for 2 months. Social services for 6 months said they couldnt enforce contact and my daughters needs were being met. Only when able to forward their assessment to my ex wifes solicitor did I have 2 hours every 2 weeks (with ex there) when she refused to restore contact after seeing my daughter was safe and happy I applied to court. My daughter then made further claims (again retracted in the same sentence the school expressed concerns that she said things to be able to then play). Shortly after a child in need conference agreed emotional abuse caused risk of significant harm. Despite a judge agreeing staggered reinstated contact cafcass seperately recommended contact be removed (without contacting the case worker or accessing assessments). I have now had two further hearings where my daughter has an appointed guardian, there are apparently question marks over the case worker following process. To add insult to injury my exwife has somehow qualified for legal aid. The social workers don't respond any longer their legal representative claimed "not had chance" to properly review! I last saw my daughter over a month ago, the current case workers most recent update was "she seems fine". It seems guilty until proven innocent is the approach whilst two agencies decide who got it wrong. In the meantime my daughter will increasingly believe she has something to fear. My ex now says my daughter is afraid of all males. Although she stated this included being alone with her new partner (in a core group meeting) I remain removed from her life!

Buckley dad - 5-Oct-18 @ 2:31 PM
I have been seperated from my wife officially from 2015 when she left with my neice who we both have an order from the court for full parental rights and responsibilities along with a residence order for my address which is where we lived at the time of the order. As I said at the top she left in July 2015 went to woman's aid and claimed she was fleeing domestic violence which is a lie. She returned back to my house in late September 2015 and lived there until March 2017. She gained a brand new built house but before she moved into it when the house was ready she allowed her sister to live in the house for 6 months. When my ex moved into her new place I bought her new furniture and bits for her place we were getting on fine I had my neice every weekend and things were going well. September 2017 my stepson came to stay with his girlfriend for a short time this lasted until February 2018 when he got his own place. A few random things my stepson mentioned gave me cause for concern but he wouldn't give me te reason why he was asking. April 2018 my ex and stepson smashed the glass on my back door of the house forced their way in and my stepson pushed me against a wall and pushed a knife into my neck and demanded money for a debt. Along with the demand for the money he said if I didn't pay it he would make an allegation against me saying I abused him. The police arrived after I refused to pay any money and thd reason I Ave him was he would come back in a few days for more as it was hush money, as the allegation is untrue I refused to pay and I told him to go to the police. He refused to go with the police 6 times that night and hid reason was " mud sticks". He has already blackmailed someone before for 60k over a 5 month period. The previous blackmail was similar he got a guy to send nude pics of himself and as he was pretending to be a girl the guy sent them, he then called the guy and said the girl was only 15 so if you give me money I will expose you as being a pedophile. The threat didn't stop at the money that night he also told me he would tell all the neighbour's what I've supposed to have done to him and he would also call my employer he has carried these threats out so far and his last threat was I will never know another days rest because when he's finished with me his mother will carry on. He has since that night in April he's been back at my house and smashed the front windows on 4 more occasions. The last thing the both of them said was they will leave me with nothing and no one. My ex has stopped me seeing my neice, I'm the blood link to my neice not my ex. Can anyone help me please

Bob - Your Question:
My wife has accused me of abusing our kid and her. She is trying to use this to get full custody. She already took our kid away 2 weeks ago. The police won't do anything. She has no proof and I am the one calling social services everyday for help. It seems all a woman has to do is say 'abuse' and you are evil. It got to a point during our relationship that I would not even touch our kid for fear of being labelled. The problem is our kid is autistic and refuses to go out, go to school etc and has breakdowns and lays on the pavement outside. I have to pick her up sometimes, help dress her when she won't and occasionally lead her by the hand so she does not get run over. I was primary school teacher and studied how to restrain kids and do the same thing when needed during tantrums. I also saw the doctors doing the same things. The problem is that my wife says any contact especially against the kid's will as abuse. The sad result has been that our kid knows she just has to have a tantrum and that either daddy will be too scared to touch her or if he does, some crying will set her mum off and they'll argue then the kid will win a day off.

Our Response:
Ringing social services every day will not help, SS will only intervene if the child is being negelcted or at a risk from harm by the other parent. If your child is being cared for adequetely social service can do nothing. The link here , will help answer your question.

My ex failed my 2 children and they ended up living with me for a year and a half.she picked them up for the holidays and adviced me that shes putting them into a new school and theyre gonna be living with her.i told her social worker and was adviced to take her to court.she now all of a sudden coerced my children into saying I've hit them and made false allegations of domestic violance when I was with her 10 years ago.this is very sad and reduced me to tears because of the imotional blackmail on the kids and how they might be feeling mentally.what can I do, as I k ow my kids are innocent in this and the fact that shes turning them against me is going to leave immotionaly irreversible effects on them.

Our Response:
Cafcass and the court are trained to see through false accusations. Your only recourse is to apply to court. If your ex has taken the children, then you have nothing to lose if you apply to have residency handed back to you. I suggest you join our Separated Dads forum as our dads can help advise how is best to approach this and what you can expect.

Tony - Your Question:
Please help. I’ve tried to join the forum but it won’t let me. I was found not guilty by a court after a false allegation was made by my partners adult daughter about when she was a child. It was a complete fabrication. Social services are not involved and I have been having contact unsupervised with my three children for the past four months every weekend via a court order that I initiated. The court has now ordered a section 7 and have now imposed supervision by my sister as my ex has now requested the contact be supervised as she feels I am a risk. They have stated the section 7 is to assess any risk in my parenting to my three children in relation to the allegations despite the not guilty verdict. My children are 4, 9 & 12. Anyone got any ideas of the outcome, will I need supervision until they are 18? This is so unfair as I am innocent and miss my kids. Any advice would be appreciated. Tony

Our Response:
If you wish to join the forum, contact the administrator and they will help you. You can find the contact details at the bottom of the site. We cannot speculate what a court may decide. As in all cases, the court’s main concern is the welfare of the child in question. The court will always put the child’s best interests first and this main issue will determine the outcome of any application for an order.

Jonny - Your Question:
Can someone please help me. I have just come out of a relationship in which my ex cheated on me and kicked me out of the house. I was a full time dad to my then 2 step children for 5 years then we had our son who is now 2. But since this has happened she is making things up about how bad a parent I was the 2 things I know of is forcing my step daughter to eat a chip and hitting them which is massive lies. I am in the process of court proceedings to get access and with no doubt she will bring these accusations up how do I defend myself and what evidence can I use to show I have done nothing wrong

Our Response:
Unless your ex can prove you have been a bad parent i.e you have a restraining order or the police have been involved then she cannot prove this in court. The best advice is to keep away from your ex as much as you can so as not to provoke any antagonism. Cafcass and the courts are wise to false accusation and know the correct questions to ask in order to define whether your ex is telling lies or the truth. Remember in court your ex is under oath to tell the truth. Therefore, if your ex is lying you have nothing to worry about.

Jonny - 7-Jul-18 @ 12:49 AM
There is some good advice about what to do on this site if you are falsely accused. Social services can totally overreact and you should definitely take it extremely seriously if you are accused. My family was wrongly accused of harming my daughter's child by her former partner. The child had a mild unexplained bruise. We, as a family, were totally innocent, and so we thought it would it would be a simple matter to clear up. From being a normal family just going about our business, with no previous social services' involvement, it blew up into something huge. Social services removed the child for over a year. We were investigated by police. We had to go to court to have the child returned to our care and we spent £30,000 in legal fees until we were totally exonerated. I don't want to scare anyone unnecessarily but a false accusation can have massive consequences. I would say do all you can to collect positive evidence in your favour. If anyone wants to read the whole story of what happened to us, our family published an account of it on Amazon Kindle. We called the eBook "Wrongly Accused." Since you're not allowed to identify a child, we had to anonymise our account and we listed it as a "Family Publication" instead of putting our names to it. We have been trying to raise awareness of the issues surrounding child removals after someone is accused. Removal is draconian for mere suspicion, but it is become more and more common. Post Baby P professionals are terrified of getting it wrong and missing abuse. Innocent families are reaping the results of this. Rather than giving the benefit of the doubt, often a child is just removed. It is likely that the media baying for blood when professionals make mistakes has led to this climate of paranoia in child protection so that totally innocent families can end up separated for very long periods.

Hi, my partner has been accused if making my 14 yr old niece feel 'awkward' she is really very close to us, the spare room is even called her room she is here that often and she has always had a very close bond with her uncle. She said she was feeling sick so he was rubbing her back got her some water gave her a cuddle then a kiss goodnight, all this is normal behaviour given how close a family we are and how he practically looks at her like another daughter!! I was there the whole time, my niece has added 2 lies to the story 1. The bedroom door was shut ( it wasn't I was on the landing sorting out the laundry) 2. He kisses her on the lips goodnight and has never done that before (only the week before he kissed her on the lips and said goodbye) so I know this is normal as throughout all our family we always do! Her mum (my sister) has I'm sure seen this as an opportunity to destroy my family and partner through what I can only assume as jealousy, we are both getting married and she's had some clear problems with it as has been very vocal and competitive over our weddings. She has also spoke to mutual friends (previous to the accusation) of how she doesn't like my partner and has basically tried to ruin his good name! She sent a threatening text to me 2 days ago saying she will go to the police about my 'weird fiance' if I continue to protect him against these claims!! It's torn the whole family apart as all members have rushed to my partners side to reassure him this is just wrong and cruel, my sister has took a firm stand and is hell be my on destroying him, yet she hasn't gone to the police regarding the situation!?! Surely if she felt that strongly she would have?? But we can't live with this accusation or threat anymore and have no idea where to turn or what action to take, he hasn't slept for days, he can't speak to anybody about it as it's just sick and humiliating but I need to know if there is something or someone we can turn to to help resolve this and put an end to it.

Hi.. I'm so upset right now, my son who is a loving Single dad to he's two & a half year old son was accused of hurting he's sons arm. The health visitor and a lady was around my sons house to “support him because my son suffers from anxiety caused by a number of things including a road accident and he's girlfriend leaving their son when he was just 3 months old, he basically looked after him from being a new born because he's girlfriend wasnt a natural mother and she was just unable to cope with the huge change, she only changed the babies nappy a handful of times since he was a new born to the 3rd and final time she'd left. My son stood up to the mark beautifully and has dedicated he's life to he's sonthe only thing is he's been struggling with this terrible anxiety and panic attacks, so because he has problems he's been getting support every 2 weeks with the health visitor and a lady from the nursery that my grandson attends 3 times a week, this lady doesn't work at the nursery but she attends there once every 2 weeks to support the children their and any needs they might require like speech therapy or a hearing test, anyway a few days ago she turned up with the health visitor and she noticed a spot on my grandsons arm, she mentioned this to my son but didn't make a fuss, a few hours later the health visitor called my son up to tell him that she's had to call the social services but this lady told her in the car she thought it looked like a burn mark made by a cigarette, my son and I was naturally upset because the health visitor knows my son very well and she knows that my son would die for he's son. I didn't know what to do, so I took him straight to the doctors to get him checked over to confirm that it wasn't a burn just a spot that looked to me as an insect bite. She checked him over and confirmed it wasnt a burn, her words were " no there's no trauma to the skin as you'd expect to see with a burn, I told them that my son doesn't smoke and therefore it'd be impossible, plus he wouldn't harm a hair on he's head. Anyway I walked out of the doctors feeling better and more relaxed. That night an emergency team of social servicescame down and said that they still want a full medical at the hospital, they said they were happy with the home situation of were my grandson lives and they said they could tell he was well cared for and then they said something which horrified methey said they had the power to remove my grandson from my son that night if they thought he was in dangerI felt so let down by the doctor and healtj visitor and this lady who started this nonsense. I took him to the hospital for a full medical with the social services standing there, who were really nice actually,but I was still fuming and extremely upsetby the whole situation. Anyway two doctors looked at him and confirmed it was an insect bite or ringworm which I've never heard of. I was sent home with my grandson with antiseptic cream and

@ Upset mumma - a 'tap' wouldn't leave a red mark. Social Services will have to conduct an investigation. They have to protect and safeguard children.
Ana - 6-Apr-18 @ 2:49 PM
