Stop False Allegations of Domestic Violence

26,983 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.

Yes there are abusive Men/Woman who don't tell the truth in Court. We need Judges and Lawyers to do what their paid to do not just throw the Citizens testimony out. Especially when it proves their innocents. We The People need to have our voices heard while in Family Court Their are criminals that get better representation then Citizen in your Family Courts. Please let everyone be heard and Laws change so the good Biological Parents get a fair hearing and give them more time with their children the children are suffering not really having rights. The Children need both Parents to led a good healthy happy life. Please help us in this matter. God Bless Us All Amen
False allegations of sexual assault are more common than many think, and a women can get away with doing this for many reasons and she gets benefit out of that even if it is obvious that she rigged the scene and lied. We should prosecute clear instances of false allegations just like they do at a increasingly high rate in the UK. False allegations hurt real victims.
Those found to have lied about a felony crime, need to be charged with a felony. Period.
There are too many lies that are used to obtain a protection order and never prosecuted for perjury when caught lieing in court. Please rectify this ongoing issue?
Although I am a mother and not a father, I too am now stuck in this cycle of an unjust cycle of vicious lies. I have not seen my son 17 months solely based on the lies of my ex boyfriend. The allegation is that I sexually abused my son. My real crime, I filed for child support. CPS adamantly refused to fully investigate the situation, then placed my son with the true abuser, his father. Not only do I have physical evidence, but I have witnesses as well. DHS refused to hold a hearing. They are waiting for the custody trial, which has absolutely nothing to do with these false allegations, other than the fact my ex will try to use this to get full custody. What about our constitutional rights? What about Due Process? What about Parental Civil Liberties? What about being considered innocent until proven guilty?
I have missed 2 of his birthdays, 2 of my birthdays, two valentines, as well as Easter. I have missed 1 Thanksgiving, and 1 Christmas. Most importantly, I have missed having the opportunities to guide my son to be a decent young man, while he is in the home of the abuser. I have missed the opportunity to keep up on his health issues as well.
I am being punished for leaving an abuser, I am being punished for asking for support. I am not the only one being punished, as my son that is with his father, and his older brother that is with me, are being punished as well.
this needs to stop.... I have been falsely accused and it has ruin my life even after going t trail 4 different times in family court and being found NOT GUILTY ever time they still treat you as if you are guilty... sickining
CASES of DV must be taken to criminal court instead of staying in family court where there is NO accountability.
When i catched my ex cheating, she went to domestic violence shelter... that is the way for them to escape!!!
I was falsely accused and with no evidence, but I was abused repeatedly and now need surgery from an abusive wife.
