Are There Laws To Protect A Man From An Ex-Wife’s False Report?

A legal system that was designed to protect against abuse is itself being abused, as described in the previous article “How Your Ex-Wife Can Legally Keep Your Kids From You.” The power of false allegations of abuse is undeniable, but the story of Darryl Ginyard gives hope to all fathers being denied their rights to see their children.



How Your Ex-Wife Can Legally Keep Your Kids From You
