My son’s life was destroyed by false accusations

Mothers of Sons is a group of ordinary women whose sons have faced extraordinary ordeals in our unjust, anti-male legal systems and workplaces.

MOS offers advice and support for other mothers and fights for fair treatment for all.

My son was taken in by the classic immigration scam - a one-night stand, pregnancy, false violence accusations and bingo, his child’s mother gained permanent residency.

They don't speak for me.
