I'm involved with a criminal investigation, that was made towards me regarding my children, by my ex wife. The accusation are false and I already spoke with the Division of Child protection and the police department... My question; Do I have the right to claim defamation of character knowing that my ex is, again, attempting to have me incarcerated, even though I have no civil nor criminal record in reference to Domestic violence or abuse of any kind..

Hello

Michael J, Esq. :

I'm sorry to hear about your situation. Unfortunately, filing charges against you will not give rise to a claim for defamation. If you can prove there was absolutely no evidence, you may be able to file charges for filing a false report, but that is very hard to prove.

Customer:

Hmm... Okay, thank you for looking over my question and taking the time to assist me with an answer... i really appreciate it, take care.

Michael J, Esq. :

NO problem. Do you have any further questions??

Michael J, Esq. :

Okay great. I really hope you have a good weekend.
