One father shares the humiliation experienced because his ex filed false allegations against him. Sadly, this is not uncommon. Fathers’ lives are RUINED emotionally and financially when lies are told and believed in Family Court. Relationships with family members and co-workers may be negatively impacted. Unfortunately, there is no full recovery from this. This is clearly an issue to address in Family Court.
To this father, There is no shame in being a victim of the system. You are not alone in your emotional struggles. There is help and hope for you.
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!
