Typically one parent makes allegations about the behaviour of the other parent. Children may also make allegations. Unsubstantiated allegations are those in which there is suspicion but insufficient evidence to conclude the allegation is true. When there is no evidence to support the allegation, it is considered unfounded. When the evidence supports the allegation it is founded.
