Nowadays, a man can never be to sure who he's dating or if she's suffering from a diagnosed mental illness.

For most men, this can prove to be a major problem when trying to ditch a former lover after discovering things just don't add up correctly.

Today, under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) which provides financial incentive monies to law enforcement agencies across America; a mandatory arrest is required when a call of domestic violence is made.

As a result, many women have slipped through the cracks under this law and have found a way to exploit this legislation to their advantage leaving law enforcement personnel with no remedy for male victims. Complaints of stalking, harassment and vandalism by these vindictive ex-female lovers are putting men at a severe disadvantage. As one long time law enforcement official stated, "There is simply nothing that we can do for a guy unlike a woman that will provide him any real protection unless we can actually prove a crime was committed. No doubt it's a double standard."

So what choices do men have nowadays? Unfortunately, none other than run for the hills if they suspect something doesn't add up. A prominent mental health official who has been keeping eyes on the recent high profile trial of Jodi Arias offers this to men, " it's a new paradigm, disengage and never blamed her. Take responsibility for the break up. Find ways to be busy. She will seek attention elsewhere. Don't be so quick to date and let her find out. Take a social media break and just try to diffuse things on all fronts. Your options with the law are limited. Take steps to protect yourself."

Unfortunately this is the case. I've represented men that are immediately put on the defensive in a matrimonial. They have walk on eggshells and bite their tongues just so they can see their children which is their right as a parent. When a "domestic violence" claim is made everything changes. The father has to prove nothing happened. It stinks but that's the way it is.

The laws are purely discriminatory in nature.
