One father shares his experience due to false accusations in his custody matter. The long-term impact of the emotional and financial devastation permeates all aspects of life. Relationships with family, friends, and co-workers are forever altered due to the lies about them. Some individuals may never know the truth. Parent-child relationships may never fully recover. Children may live their lives with false facts told about a parent they adore, cherish and love.
Looking back over the past 3 years I can see that I was in a deep state of depression. I was ashamed because of the lies and accusations made by my ex. I was ashamed because I was unable to protect my children from my wife who had ‘mental health problems.
I was falsely accused and labeled as an abuser. I lost my job. I had to move into my parents home. I was labeled as a trouble maker in my county’s courthouse. The self-help division of family court even refused to help me. The pain and shame I experienced will NEVER leave me.
I am unable to hold my head up high. I can not live a normal life because of what my ex did.
The pain and shame will stay with me forever!
