Stop False Allegations of Domestic Violence

We, the undersigned, are writing in hopes of bringing to your attention a dire misjustice that is occuring in our state as well as many others across the US. Laws inacted to protect the victims of the vile crime of domestic violence are being misused by both citizens as well as law enforcement, and in this process innocent men's lives are being destroyed. In most states, the burden of proof is being thrown out and the simple word of the acuser is being taken without question, many times without the accused even being allowed to speak. True victims of domestic violence, some of whose names you will find below, find this to be deplorable. Not only can a woman falsely accuse a man of domestic violence without fear of consequence, but the accused man has no voice against her. The accuser can be a mentally disturbed individual using such laws to exact her revenge against a man who simply does not want to be in a relationship anymore, and her word is automatically taken, even when no evidence is in place. The man in such cases is automatically arrested, injunctions are automatically set in place, and even if he is able to prove his innocence in court he has lost months of his life due to the fact that she cried wolf. Worse yet are the cases of these innocent men who are poor and have no means to hire private attorneys. Their public defenders assume they are guilty and therefore do only the bare necessities to be their legal voice.We are not in any way asking for a revocation of the laws that protect true victims of domestic violence. Our wish is that these laws be revisited and indications made to to allow for criminal and civil prosecution when someone, whether male or female, has misused these laws in a vindictive and cunning way. We also would ask that law enforcement officers, public attorneys, and judges be forced to recognize the precept that the accused is innocent until proven guilty. Unfortunately, in the cases of domestic violence accusations, the opposite is true. An example of this is that of a 20 year old Florida resident who made the bond that was set for him, only to be picked up the very next day without provocation. The acuser in this case simply told the court she was afraid. He had done nothing in terms of trying to contact her or see her, and was not without several witnesses the few short hours he was free. Something must be done to prevent those who would lie about being a victim of domestic violence from continuing to do so. If it is not, our prisons will be overrun with innocent men and our streets will be controlled by the women who sent them there.

The courts need to listen to both side before issuing out restraining orders and not just listen to one side of the story
"Here I thought we lived in a society where we innocent until proven guilty". No proof needed here and that's not fair.
I am in the armed forces.I recently came back from a 9months deployment-operation enduring freedom and after a couple weeks got served with a false allegation summon by my wife because I asked for a Devorce due to complicated developments while I was away. She has an immigration proceedings going on I was told she claiming to be "a battered wife" is the only way she could continue with immigration without me. I am just finding out also that just because she says it happened it will be treated as such by the court... Now I have my job and life on the line because an ex partner says I "threatened to kill her", "threatened to abandon her on the highway" and a lot more false allegations and threats. I am determined to do what is right and will stand by the words I was thought throughout my naval career... Honor, Courage and commitment and May God Bless us All
I am a woman and my husband verbally and emotionally abuses me. He has used physical violence on many occasions. A few years ago he beat me up and called the police he convinced them it was me who started it and I was arrested despite my bruises. Since then when ever I don't do what he wants he threatens to call the police and has which usually results just a welfare check. I am two weeks from completing probation. I guess he couldn't handle that so he picked a fight left and an hour or so later the police showed up at my door saying I've been accused of throwing a burrito at him and I am under arrest. Now I am facing domestic charges and violation of probation for contact with police. I can't return home and have no family or support, I am on my own. To top things off he's keeping my kids from me because he knows I can't come pick them up and won't allow anyone to bring them to me. I keep getting the runaround. He's using the legal system to abuse me all over again. I'm trying to research and find anyone who can help.
Its not right to be accused of anything without having proof of what took place. While the one being accused has witnesses, journal entries, and other evidence that nothing took place. Yet, still has to pay the price of being seperated with their children, as the othe parent gets off scott-free.

I spent 5 months helping my fiance get over the abuse he suffered during his previous marriage. He was sent back to prison today for two felony charges...all based on his ex-wife's testimony from almost a year ago. No witnesses are required to accuse a man of a felony. All a woman has to do is claim that "she felt her life was threatened" and that's enough to put a man away for years. These laws are being abused to obtain custody of children and "get dad out of the picture."

My wife accused me of hurting her after she was caught cheating. I would never hurt a woman.
My husband and I right now are having issues with his ex being vindictive and having him falsely arrested twice. First case was dismissed so she did it again and this time had him arrested for a felony. Because we have limited funds we can not afford an attorney so he has to take a plea deal that includes jail time that will cost his job. our home and the custody rights to the children. There is no recourse for innocent people in case like this.
this is unjust. men lose all rights and go from law abiding to criminals. the judges always favor the women and one word or cry helps them win their falsified claims
I had an ex girlfriend who took me to court in order to get a restraining order just to get me off an apartment lease and still make me pay for it. I hadn't even spoken to her in months before and she refused to take me off the lease. She told lies and I proved in court she was lying but yet she doesn't have an conciquence. Women can take men to court and lie and if the man doesn't show up the automatically take her word without proof and if he does show and she doesn't get in any trouble. This needs to change so people cannot lie under outh to mess up the lives of innocent people for their own personal reasons.
It's a serious phenomenon that is going on right with several non - immigrants female falsely making up accusations of domestic abuse to benefit from immigration documentation. It is a raising fact that is destroying many Americans and legal residents life and under age kids trapped in the middle. Uscis need to stop granting green cards for those suspected of malicious victim.
