Stop False Allegations of Domestic Violence

25,967 Letters Sent So Far

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.

my wife is threatening to do just that. hope it doesn't happen, but if it does this might help with my defense I hope.
my wife is threatening to do just that.
My ex fiance did this to me multiple times. I got out of it. I am happier now, but still it messed up part of my future based on her false allegations. What she doesn't understand is that under federal law, I can pursue purgery charges against her for lieing to police and judges as I have proof against her on that.
Amen!!
When I served Divorce papers on my ex wife. She served me with a false Protection order. Multiple calls in saying I violated the protection order. Multiple calls to the police alleging false domestic. Abuse. And one call to the police saying I had pointed a gun at her threatening to kill her which resulted in me being taken down by the local swat team. During the divorce she claimed I had poisoned her in our marriage. Through all of this I was never arrested thankfully. But it caused me to lose custody of my daughter who I was taking care of as a full time stay at home father for 2 years prior to the divorce.

I lost my daughter and everything but the clothes on my back and I was the one who refused to lie and tell the truth and I was the one who was punished.

My ex who lived and did all of this to my was awarded my daughter, my house, the cars and everything else. The more she lied and cheated the more she was rewarded. This needs to stop. And this needs to be addressed to stop rewarding those that make false allegations. They should be forced to pay damages court costs and attorney fees for those who are the targets.

Thanks for your time.

This happened to my husband by his ex. It took over a year to finally go to trial. He was found not guilty. Terrible to have all your rights taken away based on false allegations.
Prosecute perjury and false allegations.it is a crime
Domestic Violence is very real and the victims need the resources that have been set aside for them. Unfortunately, we are at a place where vindictive women can abuse these laws as a form of punishing their ex and/or maintaining full custody of the children. Something has to change! The current laws are destroying men and children. This is an important issue that needs to be addressed.
