Stop False Allegations of Domestic Violence

23,471 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 fiance is going through this right now. All he wants is to spend time with his son. And all his ex is doing is alienating him and refusing their son the love of his father, and falsely telling the judge and her own daughter that she was abused. False accusers need to be put in jail.
If ever there was a violation of rights by vindictive spouses, this is it. Not only is the family court biased against men, but this action is unconscionable to good fathers.
Ok I have been in and out of of court with my ex for the past year for custod and now going on two protection orders which both are false accusations. She is filing orders cause of our current custody agreement and her new boyfriend. She also has violate the custody order since it was first instated. I have warned her that if she keeps not letting me she my son then I will get her for contempt. Now that she's lied yet again for a protection order what will happen to her if I prove she was lying?
I hope laws like this pass to protect the innocent. I know at least three men that have been falsely accused and at least two women that are friendfriends that have attacked there ex's out of purecjealousy. I believe that these women have mental disorders and there needs to be a law that protects the innocent children andand innocentinnoce ex husbands against false claims.
Killeen Police officers pressured me to make a statement that my son assaulted me when he didn't. I told them I'm okay and not hurt and at all. They were not happy with I told them so they took me outside and took pictures of me to insist that I had st cathedral on my arms .I told them that is dry patches of skin allergies. My son was not even at home during this time. I can admit that we did have an argument but he did not assault me. KPD told the magistrate judge that my son had beat me and I was bleeding and he had a history of beating his mother. None of this is true. Right now I'm going through the process of trying to get all charges drop and removing the restraining order. I had called 911 hoping for help for my son. I refuse to allow crooked cops destroy me and my son. Yes his god father got him out of jail. My son lost some of his memory and have seizures due to a bad auto accident about a year ago. Please We the asking for your help because we're being victimized every day .We are innocent Victims. HELP US.
Thank You Kindly
My husband's issue happened in Merrimack, MH 03054. His ex-wife had him arrested for calling his son to make arrangements for father's day and going to another son's basketball tournament. She filed a restraining order as leverage for him to sign over the house and children to her. He refused and she and her attorney had him arrested. The hearing for the restraining order my husband (this occurred before our marriage) who was pro se got his ex-wife's attorney to admit that the offer to him was they could make it all go away if he signed everything over. The judge heard this- threw the restraining order away but by then it was too late. The judge, however, didn't punish the attorney or the ex-wife for falsely accusing my now husband. This law was meant to save women in abusive relationships not give women a weapon to get everything in a divorce settlement.
I am currently fighting false allegations of abuse in the very liberal State of MN. The female referee has acted with extreme bias and disrespect throughout our hearings (court transcripts), even though I presented evidence that clearly contradicted my ex-wife's false allegations. An appeal process and complaint to the MN board on judicial standards is currently underway, because it has and it is greatly impacting my ability to have continual access to my young daughter - her lies build on top of more lies. Recently, my ex-wife has moved our daughter 150 miles away from me (childhood home) without consulting myself (we share joint legal custody), the court or our parenting consultant. This puts me in a position of being a weekend dad only, which I was very clear to the court that I did not want. I want and deserve (as does my daughter) the opportunity to have as much influence and access to my daughter then her mother does. It is my fervent belief, that complete control of our daughter and retaliation for standing up for my parental rights are the main reasons that she has filed these false claims. In a state where joint physical custody is not uncommon (where both parents act in the best interests of their child), it was very easy for her to obtain sole physical custody of our daughter after claiming that I mentally and physically abused her. For a span of 13 years prior to the alleged abuse and separation the police were never called for any reason whatsoever.
After over 4.5 years in the family law system, my life has been turned upside down and my business (my livelihood) has almost been destroyed. I'm very close to loosing all that I have (the roof over my head, my transportation, my business and most importantly my daughter). I will not give up until justice is served.
Semper-Fidelis to all the good and loving fathers out there that just want to parent their children without being continual harassed and made to feel like criminals. Don't give up!
I am happy to sign your petition as I am a victim of my ex that has lied countless times. I even have court transcripts where she has committed perjury but the judge has done nothing. My daughter has told me her mom has tried coaching her that I sexually abused her. My daughter has also told me she would tell the judge as well. We tried this summer and she told cps but they did nothing.
I have been falsely arrested for DV. My husband has law enforcement connections that aid him- he filed for divorce and has said I will never get a dime. The assault ON ME that led to his buddies arresting me is actually on audio and videotape! My house has been stolen from me because of the TPO and I am living homeless. So many civil rights caught on tape violated- the legal system is more like a buddy system. When my husband verbally emotionally, financially then physically ( choking, gun pointing at me, destroying my property, assaulted me causing lacerations) I was told to get videotape- I have the evidence and I am still living a minute by minute hell awaiting trial.y
