Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello Josh, thanks for the question.
Have you been charged with anything or is this an issue of slander?
I don't do phone calls I'm afraid. I consider it contrary to the rules of the Law Society.
Without using details that can identify anyone, can you tell me more about what's going on?
OK, there are two things I recommend. Firstly that you get in touch with her to ask her if she knows anything about it, and ask her to set her boyfriend straight before you have to take legal action.
Secondly, get a lawyer (perhaps you have one already for your divorce) to write the boyfriend a letter telling him to knock it off and to set the record straight or else you'll see him in court for slander. That usually puts an end to these things.
If the cops are called, you should be fine. The boyfriend isn't the victim. And you have written evidence from her that it wasn't an assault.
Is there anything else about this you'd like to discuss? If so then please reply. If not, then I'd appreciate a positive service rating please.
Then it's time to get a lawyer to write the boyfriend a letter telling him to back off. I don't think you need to be worried about any criminal charges.
Any new developments on your issue with that boyfriend, Josh?
