backfires): it can be as simple as "hogging the remote" or as

she needs to fabricate an allegation.

How To Enforce Visitation Rights Yourself, by David Usher, covers
additional details and recommendations pertaining to taping of
conversation. His advice and recommendations apply specifically to
getting the police to enforce your child-visitation rights.
However, his advice and recommendations with respect to the taping of
conversations apply in a general fashion also to instances of false
abuse allegations. David Usher provides specific recommendations
on how to record and file what you may hear and is appropriate, and on
how to make use of it when you present it in court.
Most importantly, pay attention to Dave Usher's recommendations to
use your recorded evidence in regular court and only as a very last
resort in family court. See
How To Enforce Visitation Rights Yourself, by David Usher.
The key in David Usher's advice is that interference with an access and
visitation order for you is most likely a criminal offence on which the
police must act if you request so. Just as importantly, your
visitation rights must be spelled out quite precisely, and you must have
with you a copy of the court order that spells them when you request the
police to enforce your rights.
Nevertheless, the police in many provinces in Canada and eleshere are
very reluctant to become involved and often use every excuse imaginable
to avoid from becoming involved in what they claim to be a civil matter.
Still, interference with a court order is not a civil but a criminal

False Rape Reports from Adults
The case of Alligator Dave An
Ontario man who, although he already got jailed without trial and had
his ribs broken while in jail, doesn't take it lightly to have been
falsely accused of having raped his ex-wife (in the presence of the
police, no less!). He is now fighting in the courts to become
exonerated, and he is doing quite well on his own, without a lawyer.
Years ago Dave Thornton earned his laurels as the well-renowned
Alligator-Dave, the bane and Nemesis of Ontario crown prosecutors and
other officials that try to twist the law into a pretzel. No
doubt, he will do just as well now, fighting for his own rights, as he
did then, when he was fighting for the under-dog, the common man.
Then he was so famous that he was featured on W5. Will he
become that famous again?

There is a scarcity of information relating to false abuse allegations.
It appears that the situation is of concern only to those who are accused.
For them it is devastating even when no conviction takes place.
False abuse allegations are far more frequent than generally admitted by
the powers. Perhaps the powers are more aware of the extent than they
care to admit, after all, they are the ones who promote the use of false
abuse allegations -- amongst other things by relaxing the rules of evidence
to the extent that virtually anything can be acceptable, even glaringly
trumped-up claims. Could the reason that such information isn't
systematically collected be that our legislators and the judiciary are
ashamed to provide the evidence which will prove that jurisprudence is based
on hype and not on truth and justice?
Lacking any concrete figures pertaining to the
frequency of false abuse allegations, in the future I'll post here
information that reflects the assessment by authorities in the legal
industry as to the prevalence of false abuse allegations. The
estimates made by some authorities state that in the order of 85% or more of
allegations made in contested divorces are false.
Theresa Petkau reported at the
Family Violence Workshop in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, 1998 09 26, that
the police officers whom she interviewed during her study for her masters
thesis "ACCOUNT AND ACCOUNTABILITY: PATROL CONSTABLES' PERCEPTIONS OF WIFE
ASSAULT SENSITIVITY TRAINING, A QUALITATIVE EVALUATION" (EXECUTIVE
SUMMARY), reported that the incidence of truly battered women is

over a period of many years to incidents of alleged domestic violence.
My son-in-law who is working with a woman who for ten years was a police
constable specializing in domestic violence incidents, reported at a public
forum with Erin Pizzey, in Edmonton, Alberta, 1998, 09 27, that his coworker
had stated often that 95% of abuse allegations are false.
In a Canadian study of separated parents, mothers made two thirds of the
child abuse allegations, while fathers made a third of the allegations.
Women's rates of substantiation, suspicion, unfounded allegations, and
malicious allegations compared to those of the men making the claims
appears to demonstrate a bias against men reporting abuse, and a bias in
favor of women making abuse claims. -- Ontario Incidence Study which
is discussed at greater length in Bala et al, Allegations of Child
Abuse in the Context of Parental Separation ( Calgary: Canadian
Research Institute for Law & the Family, 1999)
The table supplied with that article translates to the
Note: The percentages in the table from which the graph
was generated contained figures identifying that 33% of all false abuse
allegations are made by fathers, and that of those 21% were considered to
be malicious. It appears that a typo occurred in the source
document and that the figure of 21% should have been 0.21%, or else the
percentages of the categories of allegations made by fathers won't add up
to 33% of all allegations made by fathers and mothers.
The Ontario Incidence Study on Child Abuse and Neglect
(1993 data) found the following:

statistics in the table.
There are many reports from people who found themselves the target of
such allegations. The numbers of false abuse allegations will be, and
are, extremely difficult to determine.
Allegations by women can be made with impunity, often simply by making an
anonymous phone call, but also often with the support of personnel at
battered women's shelters, who apparently are only too eager to help out
women who go there, often as part of their divorce strategies, to compose
the affidavits in which such allegations surface.
If allegations are found to be false, they virtually never result in an
indictment, let alone a conviction for perjury. For that reason, the
number of false allegations doesn't make it into the criminal records from
which justice statistics are compiled.
One woman at the public forum with Erin Pizzey in Edmonton reported that
she had worked for many years as a helper in battered women's shelters, but
that she finally had to quit that work on account of the lies that were
being manufactured there. She spoke of the practice of using make-up
teams who would conspire to execute make-up jobs that would fake injuries on
women and children, of which photographs were then taken that were
incorporated into affidavits claiming abuse by men. Such photographs
are extremely effective.
The strict rules of evidence used in Criminal Court proceedings don't
exist in Family Court, and no other corroborating evidence such as medical
reports by doctors is required. Even though allegations of
domestic violence aren't under trial in a custody hearing, these pictures
are nevertheless presented to make a case for "property rights to children"
and are extremely effective in making a lasting impression about the
violence of the father who is being railroaded into damnation, exiled from
his family and a life-time of paying child support for children whom he is
most likely prohibited from even seeing again.
In the case of Gary deVriess, an Edmonton man, it
took a prolonged court battle to get his ex-wifewho was proven to have made
serious false allegationsconvicted of perjury. The process took many
thousands of dollars and over thirty sessions in the court.
Gary deVriess was forced to declare bankruptcy on account of it. He
had his bitter victory, but still can't see his daughters, because they are
afraid of retributions by their mother if they get in contact with him.
The allegations made in that case served their purpose. They
established the status quomother custodyand that was maintained in the
custody decision "in the best interest of the children." Gary's case
is by no means an isolated one. Battered women's shelter personnel and
lawyers alike call false abuse allegations "the silver bullet." They
work without fail and always get their man.
In the US, DNA analysis of convicted felons serving
time for rape with aggravated assault shows that in 30% of their population
the semen found on or in their alleged victims doesn't match that of the
alleged perpetrators. 28 of the men serving time for rape and
studied by the US DoJ were released as a
result, seven more have since been released. The average length of
time served by the 28 men released initially was 7 years in prison.
That still leaves open to question how many of the cases of alleged rape in
which the DNA analysis was a match between the alleged perpetrator and the
semen found in or on the victim were in truth cases of consensual sex.
For an example of what can happen in the case of so-called marital rape or
date-rape, consider the case of the Australian man who was convicted of
raping his wife after he and his wife
engaged in consensual sex.
We must never forget that justice
statistics are based on convictions, not on the actual number of crimes
perpetrated. With justice systems that are enormously biased in favour
of women and against men, it heaps insult upon injury for all men to
extrapolate from the number of crimes (convictions) by men and women and to
draw thereby conclusions as to the propensity of either sex to commit
crimes. We must also never forget that the vast majority of all people
-- virtually all, including men -- are neither criminals nor violent.
False abuse allegations have done away with that perception, a result of a
prolonged propaganda campaign by
heterophobes that has had
all of society in its grip ever since the
over the women's liberation movement.
Violence is aberrational behaviour in all
humans. Both sexes are equally likely to perpetrate it, but virtually all people don't.
Unfortunately, it is a fact that the fear of violence in our society is
escalating, although that is perhaps more as a result of expanded
definitions of what constitutes violence than it is a reflection of the harm
done on account of violence. For instance, murder rates in Canada have been
steadily declining since 1975, to be now, at 1.76 per 100,000 cap., almost
half of what they were in 1975 (3.05 per 100,000 cap.), with spousal murder
convictions about one tenth of all murder cases, with one quarter of
spousal murder victims involving men having seen similar declines.
(See also The troubles with DV murder statistics)
It is also a fact that it is most likely people who grew up
fatherless who commit violence.
It is furthermore a fact that a large majority of convicted prison inmates
are products of

It is time that we begin again to consider and promote the good things in
the life of civilization: our families and all of the positive aspects
that come with them. Anything else is a poor substitute. It is

In your story on the Fatherhood Coalition's court protest in support of
Harry Stewart, Nancy Scannell from Massachusetts Coalition of Battered
Women's Service Group says that a few months ago the coalition held a
protest in support of a Fall River man accused of sexually abusing his
children and violating a 209A restraining order.
I know this man, Ray Saulnier, and I know the truth of his situation. His
ex-wife did indeed accuse him of sexually abusing his children during his
divorce, but he was not being tried on that issue. The district
attorney closed that case years ago, deciding not to prosecute. Saulnier was
on trial for two counts of violating a restraining order. He was
accused of being seen by his children. Despite the fact that he had
many witnesses who testified that he was elsewhere, he was convicted on one

WCVB TV (Massachusetts), aired February 17, 2000. This was a program
about false abuse allegations, allegations by women who use the process of
209a restraining orders to gain strategic advantages in divorce and custody
battles. The program looked at the abuse of 209a restraining orders
from the viewpoint of fathers who become abused by the legal process

Harry Stewart Seeking to Get His Children
Totally Exonerated on All Charges of Abuse

The father who was sent to jail for six months in 1999 for refusing to
sign a false statement that he had abused his wife is now seeking to
recover his children after being totally vindicated earlier this year of
all charges of abuse by a probate judge.
The ordeal is not yet over for Harry Stewart, however. He says the
greatest tragedy has been to his children. His former wife has had custody
of their two boys during the six years that she fraudulently tormented
