my ex is falsely accusing me (mother) and boyfriend of child abuse and has filled for an emergency full custody order. Unfortunately he is filling for reasons that do not concern real concern for his safety. My boyfriend and my son were wrestling and I know this is where the injury is from. My son is autistic and has often aggressive behaviors and injuries are common. my ex is claiming it is a pinch XXXXXXX from someone's hand. I was wondering where might be a good place for me to contact to receive this type of specialist capable of possibly ruling out that accusation or help show evidence that this injury could be from any other cause, for instance, a pinch between the floor and a body part or toy.

Brief Answer:
Forensic medicine specialist

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.
The picture that you flashed along with this mail shows bruising and to determine what has actually caused bruising is difficult to determine for the regular doctors. If at all they comment, they wont be doing it with certainty to be put on records.
The kind of doctors who can be good at this are forensic medicine specialists. They deal with most of the medico-legal issues and they can comment on such a case after thorough examination. In India we have such forensic medical experts in each of the medical schools. Same should be the case in United States, which you can enquire from your GP.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
If not, you may close the discussion and if possible you may rate the answer for me, so that I get a good feedback.
In future if you wish to contact me directly, you can use the below mentioned link:

Wish you good health,
Kind regards
