(Female) Stalkers, False Allegations, and Restraining Order Abuse

April 16, 2014

0

Restraining orders are maliciously abused—not sometimes, but often. Typically this is done in heat to hurt or hurt back, to shift blame for abusive misconduct, or to gain the upper hand in a conflict that may have far-reaching consequences.
