Timpson woman indicted for making false claims in custody case

It is not uncommon for child custody hearings in San Antonio to become contentious. Often, the negative emotions that divorcing spouses may feel towards each other combine with the love they have for their children to create a potentially explosive mix. This may cause a parent to lash out at the other in an attempt to undermine the his or her character (along with his or her parental abilities). While some may believe such action will support their own claims for custody, the court may actually view them as antics that may sabotage a parent’s efforts. This is especially true if one goes too far in heaving accusations at another.

A Timpson mother is currently learning this the hard way after she was recently indicted by a grand jury for making fraudulent claims in hopes of improving her chances in her ongoing child custody battle. She had been making claims throughout the last year that a member of the family of her children’s father had been abusing the kids. A subsequent investigation into the accusations proved them to be baseless and untrue. The woman now faces multiple charges of child endangerment, with the district attorney prosecuting the case claiming that her actions caused a danger to her kids’ mental and emotional states.

One’s desire to fight to retain custody of his or her children may be understandable. Yet at the same time, it may be advantageous for those engaged in a custody dispute to take a step back and realize that any outlandish action could end up hurting both sides. Ultimately, working together to come to a resolution may result in the best outcome. Reaching such a resolution may be much simpler if both sides enlist the services of attorneys.
