Avoiding domestic violence

Assistant District Attorney Joy Alford-Brand prosecutes dozens of domestic violence cases each year. "Most people don't realize how prevalent it is and how many cases we've got. We have a pretty good case load,” she said.

I understand fully the need for the protective order but what can one do when an ex-wife uses the system to "get at you" by taking a ficticious charge against you ? My ex has done it more than once and the court always takes their word over the defendant, at least that has been the way it's happened with me. My present wife went to court with me today and for the first time in three years, the judge gave me the benefit of doubt. Hopefully now justice will prevail. I welcome any and all comments on this matter. Thank you.
