False accusations have been used to ruin many lives with little penalty to those who make them. Many have spent years in prison because of them and little if anything is done to those who lied to put them there. False accusations would drop dramatically with one simple step....make false accusations punishable at the same degree as those they accused did or would have gotten. If one is wrongfully accused of a 1st degree felony, the accuser would also be charged with a 1st degree felony.
The ex-wife attempted to obtain a restraining order on me due to all my alimony reform advocacy. The then 18 year son also testified against me in court. Both claimed to be in fear and afraid. My wife and I have a YouTube video interviewed by the Florida Family Law Reform group. The ex complained about it and was obviously trying to muzzle our abolish lifetime alimony advocacy. On August 21, 2013 the judge ruled for Order of Dismissal of Temporary Injunction for Protection "The evidence presented is insufficient under Florida law". The ex filed in the Circuit Court of the 13th Judicial Circuit, in and for Hillsborough County, FL Case No: 13-11991 Division G http://opencourtrecords.org/case.php?id=3081441 and on August 21, 2013 the judge ruled for Order of Dismissal of Temporary Injunction for Protection "The evidence presented is insufficient under Florida law".

Stop tormenting men just on mere allegations of false women.
Stop tormenting men just on mere allegations of false women.
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.
False allegations of DV have become standard practice when one party decides they need a little extra leverage in court. It's often encouraged by other parties who've successfully used the same strategy to inflict revenge on their ex-partners, and sometimes even the attorneys themselves. Laws and policies are set up to discriminate by gender such that proof is not required if the accused is a man, and there are no repercussions for lying. Due process of law is violated without recourse. This situation must be remedied to protect the integrity of our families and uphold rights within the judicial system.
Delaware is a nightmare state!
My ex ruined my life with her false claims and did so after stalking me. I love how she got away with it and looks to be still getting away with it. Thanks cops for proving me right about you.
There are more innocent people being punished for domestic violence then guilty ones.
I have been a victim of false allegations in my divorce, just to remove me from my child's life. Please make it easy to prosecute false allegations.
The reason there's so many violent women and female pedophiles is because they turn on the TV and see the courts will just sentence them like children. There's clearly no deterrent for these abusive and violent women
lets make this work... i have a ex gf with self inflicted injuries from bathroom and work accident. im currently been served a restraining order for a year in retaliation because i had her removed from my residence (my apartment ). courts should never accept and files from any victims that choose to file days or months later instead of the day it just happened. restraining order expires September this year.
False accused and convicted of domestic violence. Twice accused of inappropriate sexual conduct; twice her stories did not withstand the scrutiny of investigators and those who seek the TRUTH. Restraining orders and criminal convictions = parenting time limitations
I am currently dealing with a woman whom I love very much and wanted to have a marriage with. She left with our child 4 weeks ago, and has kept me from my daughter in addition to filing false claims of child abuse with the C.P.S. and has been staying in a shelter for abused women. The CPS case worker saw that she was lying and closed the case. Her exact words were that "your child's mother has no idea of what abuse is", and that she was going to close the case. She has spent the last 4 weeks telling everyone that she is afraid of me, but cannot explain why? I have NEVER committed domestic violence with my daughter's mother. The police have been called and even they knew that it was a farce. These types of situations have got to stop. In order for this to stop, women who file false claims must suffer some consequences. Domestic Violence is a serious matter that should not to be played with. There are thousands of women and children who really suffer from domestic violence and really need help. It is not fair to those who are really being abused, nor is it fair to the men and children who are involved in the false allegations, not to mention case workers and police officers whose time and energy is wasted responding to false claims. As a man who grew up in an abusive home, I am disgusted by anyone who would make false claims of abuse. I beg of congress to implement some type of punishment procedure against anyone who lies about being a victim of domestic violence. This is the only way that this will stop. When people have to deal with consequences for their actions, it makes most people think twice about taking those actions unless they are hardened criminals who don't care or mentally ill, which brings me to another point. There definitely should be a psychological observation performed on the women who make false claims as well. A lot of times these women suffer from emotional issues of the past that have been buried and they are coming to the surface. By doing this the matter can be handled from a clinical perspective as well as a criminal. Please. I beg of you to really make the necessary changes to the Domestic Violence policies to prevent false claims and protect the rights of the children and the person whom the false claim was made by.
This law should be abolished. Destroys lives & families & financial drain. It's no longer the truth but a twisted version & branded as criminal for normal family situation & how dare you become at the mercy of the system--a victim of the police (instigator)....How this law came about, from just 1 family: the Brown Family-WOW-horrendous -Unbelievable- when their case has nothing to do with families in general. The Puppets who created this law will have their dues too, payback for destroying lives--what they did is Blatant Discrimination of the family population as a whole!
the accuser visited my son in jail, sometimes I had to shared visits, went to p accused ick him up when he was released but I was there, wrote a letter to my son letting him know when he get out she was going to be at a party friends was throwing for him, she got pregnant, drommer, drommer, drommer, by the time her baby turned 1 , he was accused again, she called me and told me he was going to jail tonight and at 4a.m. she called to say by the way chris is in jail and I said for what she said convicted felony with a firearm. I know her and I know that night wasn't by chance
Victim of false restraining order and it was someone who had been abusing and harassing me. I am motivated to do something about this.
Give fathers equal rights....
My life was ruined because of a woman accusing me of domestic violence ,we lived together for 7 years and she acused me three times the first two times it got thrown out of court cause there was no evidence of domestic violence whatsoever,but she didn't give up she swored to me that she would ruin my life and eventually she did.i went in front of the same judge that had seen my case the two other times and he eplaied how he was tired of seeing me there and that this time he was gonna make sure I never came back.i was happy thinkin he was gonna advise her that if she made a false accusation like that again she would be charged ,but instead he convicted me after 2 months in jail and turned me into a convicted felon in the state of florida.i have no rights at all!cant vote cant own a weapon to protect my self and my family.in the meantime my ex has a concealed weapons license and works for the county that convicted me.she obviously has mental issues but I was never heard!now im goin thru hell with the whole child support thing and my kids are living in hell with this female.but again I got convicted so I have no rights,,the court system truly failed me and my children!
YWCA of Tacoma is corrupt and needs to stop supporting criminal behavior by women who seek easy free divorce by falsifying domestic violence. A women that is abused would run to the police, but she does not because if her lies are exposed she is jailed like the criminal she is for falsely reporting a fake crime. That is why women choose the alternative and go to a system that is not accountable for criminal behavior that puts people at risk, and children.
Once I told my living mate to leave my apto , then she treated me to hit her face with a cooking pan to put me in jail and make an immigration case base on domestic violence . I was afraid because she was having advices from her ex-boyfriend , a police officer . I had to stand this woman for 1 1/3 years before she left my apto .
My husband has a daughter he has not see since she was one and a half she is now going on seven. He pays child support on her on time and has papers that state he is supposed to have her every weekend. And she is supposed to have his last name. The mother changed her last name back to her maiden name without his consent and will not let him have anything to do with her! She now has a two year old little brother and has no clue. We have fought for her but have no money to continue and no one will help us. Child support officers need to have some sort of audit done for fathers paying on time and make sure they are getting to see their kids like they should be!
My ex-wife (an alcoholic) viciously attacked me , in a drunken rage, then called the police. I was arrested, w/o the officer even talking to me, even though her minor injuries are proven to be of her own cause. He said it was because she had "bruising and swelling on her face". The medical examinations of a Triage Nurse and 3 doctors document she was normocephalic atraumatic. His own pictures showed she hadn't a mark on her face. I was subsequently convicted of Aggravated Domestic Violence, for allegedly slugging her in the side hard enough to fracture 2 ribs (and without leaving a single mark), and smashing her head into the wall at least a dozen times. Numerous doctors' reports, XRAYS, MRI's and a video of her walking, and laughing and joking, prove the case was a complete fabrication. NONE of the actual medical evidence was shown at my trial. Not one shred of it. The Circuit Court Judge, at my Appeal, stated I did not have the right to possess the evidence, much less have it shown to the Jury. I am not kidding. We now have shown--besides the fact the Prosecutor withheld the tapes of the alleged victim, as well as the police abusive, profane interrogation of me in my own home, from me until after I was convicted. And no Miranda. We now have shown the police altered a photograph, and used it as evidence against me. They also altered the secretly-recorded audio from inside my home--for the Appeal, as they clearly did not want the Jury to hear it. The actual evidence is irrefutable: she did not have any broken ribs nine days after the incident, but suddenly showed up at her doctors on day ten in "respiratory distress", with two newly fractured ribs. And she also had a new complaint of difficulty moving her arm (the rib fractures were near the scapula). The Jury was allowed to hear that she had broken ribs when she left my home. She had no trauma to her head whatsoever. The jury was allowed to hear I caused her to have two herniated disks in her neck. The MRI shows they were old injuries. We have shown the police committed numerous counts of perjury. They even said I was the one who was drunk (the Prosecutor covering up for the fact her BAC was still 0.068% five hours after her last drink--she attacked me because I kept pressing the garage door opener button, in an attempt to keep a very drunk woman from driving...again) even though my BAC was 0.078% when I peaked, in my home, as i asked for a PBT. None of this ever mattered. Now a dozen documents have gone mysteriously missing from the Record of Actions, And my life has been destroyed.
I am going through this right now. It is mortifying. My whole life has changed. This is not justice.
I am falsely accused of domestic violence, I knew nothing of multiple sclerosis, the signs are all their,she has ruined my life,as I yhead for trial
I am a woman and a victim a false domestic violence charge made against me by a highly unstable drug addicted ex-boyfriend with a history of considerable violence in an outlaw biker gang. I was 49 at the time and had no prior arrests, charges or convictions, I in fact had a security clearance for 13 years. I took care of him as he has some health issues (none of which stop him from being through-the-roof unstable and physically aggressive). I was made to feel obligated by him to take care of him with the constant threat of his risking death due to his health conditions. He also threatened suicide many time. It was a codependant relationship. This person who filed the charges could essentially be like one of the outlaw bikers who were involved in the outlaw biker gang shootout recently near Waco Texas that left 9 people dead and many others injured. He in fact has confessed to many people that he in fact killed someone in a gang territory shootout. I, for the life of me, cannot understand how it is that the state of West Virginia could see fit to protecting such a person! He is abusing laws designed to protect victims. I am in fact such a victim both of domestic violence and rape. The countless times I have not wanted to go on with my life...and now I am a victim of the very system that claims to protect victims - the irony is gut-wrenchingly disgusting!. :-((( When I was arrested, I was not questioned, not read my Miranda rights, and was denied access to a lawyer when I asked for one. If the police had quedtioned me they would have seen their "probable cause" flushed down the drain. Instead, I am now facing the potential for a 2-10 year sentence if I am convicted as I absolutely adament in refusing to plea bargain and plead guilty or no contest to something I did not do!!! My goal is to make my story as widely known as possible. Please stop victims of this horrible travesty of our legal system! It seems evil has won, all is hopeless and I don't even want to go on living as I write this.
Innocent until proven guilty should apply across the board. This happen to me.
my children r hurting bcuz of false allegations of dv they was removed from my custody and i am fighting like crazy to get them back and the dsc/cps caseworker wont give me children back.... please something needs to be done.... http://www.petition2congress.com/17788/state-arizona-cps-caseworker-corupt-family-needs-help
These DV laws are nothing but a joke. I am sure they were originally put in place with good intentions. However today they are constantly abused by women looking for leverage in court and divorce proceedings. My ex wife filed false DV claims against me and was offered a temporary restraining order. All she had to say was that she felt threatened by me, no evidence of abuse or violence needed. I was escorted out of my house by police, even though I was the one with the bruises from being violently assaulted by her. I even had video tapes of her assaults, yet nothing happened to her. It seems like the law only cares if the man is the aggressor.
Although the charges against me were eventually dropped I was forced to enter into a civil restraints agreement with her ( although I had done absolutely nothing to her) and it offered my ex wife sufficient leverage during the divorce process. Just the fact that I was accused, false or not, was enough to influence some of the judge's decisions.
Absolutely appalling...this is not a justice system.
I'm going through this right now my wife is trying to ruin my life simply out of anger because I want a divorce.
