Index of Domestic Violence and False Allegations Research and Stories
Judges in many states (not all) give out restraining orders "like candy" as the lawyers say. Usually to a women against a man even though about 50% of domestic violence has been proven to be initiated by women by many studies. This is often a violation of a person's civil rights as it denies that person property, liberty, family income and their home without anything having ever occurred! - Often there is only a claim of fear with ulterior motives to evict the man from the home and control the children and income. PEOPLE ARE DESTROYED EMOTIONALLY, FINANCIALLY IN OTHER WAYS WITH NO CRIME EVER COMMITTED (just a claim of fear). In fact even if there were proper due process, which most of these judges are ignoring completely - since often NOTHING has ever happened it is unconstitutional and an illegal order anyway. See what legal scholars say about this.
Here are references proving how big and destructive this abuse of our legal system is today. Lawyers are not helping to fix this because it drive UP legal fees - since in a divorce now two lawyer need to be in-between each and every communication. This is a holocaust that is destroying children, families and even their estates because once started it usually escalated to a full scale legal and custody battle (Boy do the lawyer love that at $100,000 plus per case!).
Massachusetts alone issues between 25,000 and 40,000 restraining orders per year. Lawyers agree that between 50% and 95% should NOT EVER be issued. They are very harmful to the person they are issued against and a tactic in divorce to prevent fathers from getting fair custody and visitation rights. See one lawyers web site dedicated to this outrageous abuse of our legal system.

Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court Clarifies (And judges continue to ignore) IAMELE CASE:
Massachusetts’s highest court has ruled that the standard of proof for the renewal of 209A emergency restraining orders must be same as the standard used in the original hearing for the issuance of the order. In Iamele v. Asselin, the court held that the “plaintiff seeking an extension of a protective order must make a showing similar to that of a plaintiff seeking an initial order -- most commonly, the plaintiff will need to show a reasonable fear of imminent serious physical harm at the time that relief.” (Emphasis added). In addition, judges must now articulate the standard by which they make their decision.
Child Support Incentive Abuse
A $358,000 bounty on the head of children (using $50,000 income avg. and 23 years maximum payments) is a serious incentive for many unethical women to use the domestic violence laws to throw the father of their children out, take the house and get up to 23 years of tax free payments.
