Stop False Allegations of Domestic Violence

24,711 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 ex wife recently entered an ex-parte order of protection against me because I sent her an email stating that "I want to be left in peace, in order to live my life and conduct my business without harassment." The judge dismissed her order for protection, but I was arrested in court for violating the order because our custody agreement states that I must always email her a notification when I am picking up the child from school. I simply cannot believe this is happening to me. The email in question was so simple, it only stated that I was picking up our son at 3 PM, as usual. It is the same email I send every week. It should be obvious to everyone that this abuse of process is a danger to children. If I am punished for sending a simple notification regarding the safe exchange of our child, it sets a dangerous precedent in which a child abduction could go unnoticed due to a lack of notification.

For the sake of those suffering from domestic violence, those who cry wolf should be punished. Abusing the laws that protect the true victims of domestic violence steals the fire from those true victims and makes it much harder for them to come forward. If it can be proven that these laws are abused for malicious purposes, the abuser should be punished as if he or she was a domestic abuser.

I told the police many times that my wife made up the story that I hit her and that she has mental issues. I had a no contact order so I could not call home to even talk to my kids. She continues keep me from seeing my kids. Come to find out later she had a boyfriend and I filed for divorce. of coarse I got to pay for the mortgage and utilizes for her, my kids, and her boyfriend to live in my house until it was finally sold. I was treaded as guilty by the police and court system from the time of the 911 call.
She has a personality disorder and the system never explored or took into account or frankly even cared.
Currently a victim of false domestic battery charges.
I have been a victim too at 73 years old and disabled. The people who did this had been bullies for years. They are uneducated and on the criminal edge with their actions.I was bullied for two solid years before it came to its outcome with the falsified restraining order I was denied my constitutional rights to justice and that is even a more grievous situation. This was planned by four people over a period of time. Why else would they be filming me when I came out of my home at 8:30 PM to go get meds for a very bad asthma attack? All of these cases represent true injustices and ithey need to be rectified.
I am dealing with false accusations right now by my soon to be ex-wife through the Protection Services The system believes all her lies with NO PROOF!!! Where is the justice? She falsified a police report to claim abuse, luckily the police didn't believe her, but they refused to charge her with Falsifying A Police Report!!! You Got To Be Kidding Me!!!!
My wife has made false accusations against me and taken an injunction out so that I could no longer see my children or even be able to collect my personal items from my house. I have been kicked out of my home and have been forced to take a batter's course for something that I did not do. all of this because I got into a small argument with my daughter which my wife does on an every other day basis with my daughter. she has been diagnosed bipolar and has also been Baker acted in the past in a previous marriage however the injustice of the court system ate up every word that she had to say and her false accusations. I am in detergent and disabled and I am currently awaiting my disability case to go to trial so she knows that I cannot fight back or afford any lawyers. she conned are roommates into lying as well with the promise of giving them my electronics. the justice system is punishing an innocent man do to a false accusation and something needs to be done about this. I even pleaded by filing two petitions asking for a polygraph test to be done or any other form of lie detecting test to prove my innocence. is there anyone out there that can help me I have lost my family my home and I am only down to the clothes on my back.
