Burden of Proof

What is “Burden of Proof”?

Burden of Proof

Burden of Proof is a term used in legal matters to define two things:

  1. The duty placed upon someone to prove or disprove a disputed fact.
  2. Which party (plaintiff or defendant) has to do the proving or disproving.

In most cases, the plaintiff (the party bringing the claim) has the burden of proof, in other words, it’s up to the plaintiff to provide evidence. Which brings us to the next definition:

Standard of Proof

Burden of Proof decides who has to provide the evidence. Standard of Proof determines what is clear and convincing evidence.

What is Burden of Proof for witnesses in Family Court proceedings?

The most common types of evidence offered in a child custody case includes witnesses, journals, emails, text messages, voicemails, letters, photographs, videos, audio recordings, schedules, and records such as financial, medical, school, and police reports.

What is supposed to happen if someone provides false evidence, or lies under oath?

According to US law, is that they are charged with perjury and punished either with a fine or imprisonment.

In contrast, what has my experience been regarding Family Court in Charleston?

When I asked him about these unsubstantiated affidavits given about me by highly suspect sources, my former South Carolina divorce attorney, Jim McLaren, once said that “in 45 years I’ve never seen anyone being held accountable for giving false testimonies under an affidavit.” This might explain why some find it to be a convenient way of getting the legal system to work in their favor, even though there are no facts backing it up whatsoever. Everything I’ve shared and will continue to share is backed up 100% by public record and verified evidence.

Countless people have given false testimonies against me in Charleston Family Court. It is my intention to bring to light every single one of those false affidavits with hopes that justice will be served and it would be a lesson which will discourage others from providing false testimonies, especially as it involves innocent children.

Giving False Testimonies to Federal Government

Several of Micfo’s former employees were interviewed by the FBI in the months leading up to my indictment on May 15th, 2019. Their witness testimonies contain no verified facts, only hearsay from disgraced former employees.

Could they have been serving their own agendas by validating the FBI’s narrative?
