By qualitative interviews of the family court secretaries and quantitative studies of social security documents I found several answers to my questions.

The allegations where sometimes true but in other cases false and most likely invented to be used as a weapon against the other parent in the divorce- and custody battle. The mothers generally accused the fathers of sexual abuse on the children. Children rarely disclosed the sexual abuse to the family court personnel. (Less)
