Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.I am sorry to hear of this situation. Yes, she can be sued for deliberately making a false claim. However, you will need more evidence that this was done out of "spite" then her telling you - that would be your word against her word.So you would want to work with CPS and have them verify that she admitted that she did this knowing that what she was saying was not true.
I suggest that such lawsuits are costly and while you may be able to find a local attorney to take the matter any attorney is going to want to know what her assets are to collect. There is no sense in suing someone who has nothing for you to gain. Court is costly and takes time. But I suggest you should consult with a few local attorneys, and see if she has enough assets for them to consider taking this on a contingency basis.Please note that I can only provide information for what you ask. In that regard, if you have other questions or need clarification, please post them here. Otherwise, I appreciate your Positive Rating as that is how I get credit for my time and information.Thank you
