ALLEGATIONS OF CHILD ABUSE IN THE CONTEXT OFPARENTAL SEPARATION: A DISCUSSION PAPER

Received 2 July 2003; received in revised form 13 June 2004; accepted 20 June 2004 http://www.leadershipcouncil.org/docs/Trocme.pdf

Deliberate false reporting by fathers in contested custody cases is in fact much greater.  A study by Nicholas Bala (below) revised (above) and his colleagues found fathers make false allegations 16 times more frequently than mothers. 

These are mostly extreme abusers who do not believe his partner has a right to leave and are using the children to pressure her to return or punish her for leaving.  They have a tremendous sense of entitlement which they believe justifies any tactics including false reports.
