America’s legal system has become awash in false allegations of abuse, including false accusations of domestic violence, child abuse, and sexual assault. False allegations are harmful because they:M current family court troubles started when my ex-wife made a false complaint to CPS 3.5 years ago. The court-appointed psychologist said that there was no abuse, but the court will not admit that it made a mistake.
Take away scarce protections and services from real victims
Can be devastating to the falsely accused
Undermine due process and cause misuse of our legal system
Force children into single-parent households, placing them at higher risk of social pathologies
Let’s be perfectly clear: Making a false accusation of domestic violence is a crime, and persons who make such allegations should be held liable for their actions.
June is False Allegations Awareness Month, and this year’s theme is “Zero Tolerance for False Allegations.” Throughout the month, events will be held around the country to raise awareness that making a false allegation of abuse is a form of abuse.
