Stop False Allegations of Domestic Violence

28,851 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.

I'd like to see equal right for father's who fight for their kids. My son who has been falsely arrested and charged with domestic is fighting for his children. Mom is a stay at home mom only because she has learned how to work the system and, manipulate her father into supporting her, while trying to alienate my son from the kids.
Then-wife called 911 on me three times, with no evidence of assault. Third time called police while I was sleeping after a night of her drunken rants. Told police I was suicidal. Spent a month in solitary, never knowing why. Six weeks in jail at age 65. Parkinson's disease. I'm a Wake Forest grad and war veteran. No previous record. Class A misdemeanor prevents me from housing and employment. Have written proof of her jailing me to avoid community property/divorce. Year later she showed up unannounced and tried to kill me with automatic pistol. Didn't fire. Now she has criminal record. What was a happy home now two lives destroyed by one person's misuse of system. Police never spoke to me, even though she was obviously drunk at time of call. My case is not unique. Media pushes DV hysteria, no questions.

Something in the law needs to change .
My son was falsely arrested and sentence in berrien county August 2015.
He has shelled out much cash only to get probation and the risk of losing his 20 month old son to a liar.
This isn't right the law needs changed.
What happen to innocence til proven guilty.
This petition while being in great need, does not cover the fact that those filing false allegations are not just wives against husbands, or girlfriends against boyfriends. There are a growing number of cases involving, in-laws against in -laws, sibling against sibling and so on. Please do not forget these people when working on helping the other victims- the falsely accused.
False allegations are a form of abuse.
I've been a victim of falsely accuse of domestic violence in fact even now as I type , on August 26,2015 at 124 am I was arrested in nyc in queens, my ex girlfriend plan the whole incident. At 12 am I decided to go to my car for 1 hour and think if I should stay and live in a home of being control being force to perform sexual acts, being force to give up money , living in fear of her threats and tired of walking on egg shells in my own apartment. I pray and thought long and sitting in my car I said enough is enough I would leave her but first I would tell my ex girlfriend and see if she agree , I got out my car walk to the front of my house and sat down on the steps then in 4 mins she came downstairs and said we need to talk I no longer want you living here I said this is my apartment you leave then I told her you know what I'm moving out keep the apartment and I do not want to stay in a abusive relationship any longer, she saw that I was serious and said no let's talk about us , I said no I can't tolerated this emotional roller-coaster any longer, she just kept trying to work on the relationship I was thinking I need to say I'm seeing someone else maybe like that she would end it faster and stop trying to convince me, I told a lie and said I am dating someone else she stood up and said good for you enjoy now you're see what I would do she walk upstairs and lock the door behind her when I open the door and I took two steps up she knock on a neighbor door saying please help me crying saying that I have a knife call 911, before you know it about 10 cops show up and cop cars cover the street, they ask me what happen I explained what happen and told them if they don't believe me to check the camera's we were only discuss about our relationship and I decided to take a stand and end this toxic relationship, I did not know what was her story to the police but one cop came downstairs and said your being under arrest place your hand being your head spread your legs, if felt like my whole life turn upside down, I told the nice officer on my right what happen why, he said she claim you went after her with a knife to her while she was holding a baby then claim I punch her bottom lip, I said that's impossible officer we were sitting in front of this home and nothing ever occur upstairs in the apartment, I said please check the camera's none of her saying is true ,I was still arrested and spent the night in jail , later release and was charged 4 counts and service an order of protection to stay away from my ex girlfriend, today is Sept 2nd I lost my jobs , for the first time a criminal record, all because I stood up to end an emotional and sexual abused relationship.

I was told by neighbors that she's been calling the cop's still making falsely claims about me, meanwhile she texted me that she's sorry that she lie and gotten me arrested please come back home we need you, I refuse to
As a male victim of domestic violence and abuse, it is the most difficult thing to deal with, when, not only are the support services available to dv victims unavailed to men but often times I have been left with a feeling as though the providers have a great distain at the mere thought that a young male without disability can even consider asking for such services (most like to further his abuse upon the "true" victim) .
I have even been laughed at and yelled at in other instances for asking for the much needed assistance which should be provided without any prejudicial biased or discriminating presumptive assertion by the people who are the first point of contact or first line of defense against domestic violence.
Policy should be in place to better regulate law enforcement practices by setting up policies and best practices, juudicial process could have more thorough investigatory proceedure in place and instilled within the service providers who are there to assist victims of dv should be ano open mindedness for the ever changing nature of the domestic relationship; especially as it pertains to financial abuse and emotional abuse - for it is true that domestic violence can be inflicted upon men and even those who may appear to be weaker or less able bodied can be just as abusive, hurtful, destructive and violent as any other person can.
This has been the case in each situation I have faced in my adult life where I had not only been turned away by those who are under oath to protect me against harm, they have actively furthered my pain and the damage caused with respect to the issue of domestic violence and abuse.
I am a single mom falsely accused of elder abuse by my narcissistic mother - she's attempting to steal my children to abuse myself and them after a lifetime of abuse from her - she has alienated my oldest children against me and I'm losing my career and my kids and possibly my freedom and all else
I completely agree with all the statements. ANYONE who falsely accused another of domestic violence should be penalized with jail time and punitive damages. I was falsely accused, processed, jailed like any other criminal so to be let go after five days encarcerated and a document of the supposed victim stating she will not prosecute. Moreover, my friend who took her to the DA's office video taped the entire conversation on her phone. Now, I have a criminal arrest record for life, bail money paid from my savings and if I want to get it expunged I have to PAY FOR IT???!!! It will always be there along with my finger prints. The laws are screwed up. I am certain that if there were laws against false accusers it will help those whom are really in danger of domestic violence.
