Protection for People Wrongly Accused of Violence
The Department of Social Services exists to protect people from abusive and unsafe living conditions. When used correctly, they keep children away from abusive adults and parties away from abusive partners. Unfortunately, the system is not perfect, and people can be wrongly accused.

Understanding the Restrictions That Come With Orders of Protection
If a man or woman goes to the Department of Social Services (DSS) and claims their spouse abused or threatened to abuse them, they may receive protection. If DSS takes the case, the non-accused parent could receive full child custody and visitation rights to their children. The parent who is wrongly accused of the crime can be subjected to orders of protection, including but not limited to:
- Losing parenting time.
- Being prohibited from carrying a gun, even for work.
- Restricting interactions with children, including working as a bus driver or teacher.
These restrictions make sense for someone who is guilty, but they are not appropriate for someone who has been wrongly accused.
