Restraining order laws are dangerous and unfair to men

367 Signatures Goal: 500

I and many other men have been, and are the victims of spurious or vindictively motivated restraining orders; all which is necessary to obtain a restraining order, under the current law is an UNSUBSTANTIATED, accusation of abuse, or claim of fear of potential abuse, no matter how outlandish or bizarre. NO PROOF is needed or asked for, and the man is automatically assumed to be guilty, and is thrown out of his home, deprived of his children and property, with no recourse but a very short Hearing sometime in the future, and there is NO PENALTY for lying to the court in order to deliberately injure another person, and no provision is made for accusations made by the mentally ill. The violence against women act is a good law, but is out of balance and dangerous to many innocent men, who are often unaware that the order has been filed until the police show up to throw them out of their home. Penalties must be added for lying to the courts to obtain false restraining orders, in order to deliberately and falsely injure another party. We the people of the United States of America, demand that our Lawmakers address this gross inequity in the law and redress the wrongs done by ensuring that the abuses will be stopped and that deliberate abuses will be punished by law.

My name is John Baker and I am married to a woman with a mental illness who has over the last 15 years filed many restraining orders against me, and as many times as the court has dealt with her and I, they refuse to do anything to prevent abuse even though I have shown them many times that the restraining orders were without merit, When my wife is well and on her medications she is very sweet and caring and takes very good care of me, but when the illness gets out of control she is a different person, I have met many men who have been the victims of this unbalanced, unfair and, in my estimation; unconstitutional(as written) law, we need to restore fairness and balance to the law (and also state and local laws), by adding penalties for lying to the courts and deliberately misrepresenting the truth in order to hurt someone or gain an unfair advantage, Filing false police reports is already illegal, lets make them enforce the law.

    Have been unable to see my child for over 4 months over an argument where there was NO physical violence. Currently the court has continued no contact as a condition of probation over again an incident where there was NO physical contact to my girlfriend or daughter. Thank God for American courts and being innocent till proven guilty......

    I am only 15 years old and this restraining order against me is useless. I go to the same high school with her and you know girls will be girls they will make up stupid things to get you in trouble. I don't want to go to jail for something I didn't do and no one has proof of
