Munchausen Syndrome is a medical diagnosis that can come into play during child abuse charges and termination of parental rights cases. Munchausen by proxy occurs when a caregiver intentional causes sickness in a person they are caring for (i.e. a parent causing their child to be sick). While this type of psychological disorder is real, a parent can often times be falsely accused of it. It is important to have an attorney that has experience with child abuses cases involving such accusations.
