Hello, My name is ***** ***** I will assist you today. Please give me a few minutes to write a response and identify any additional resources for you.
If your husband gave you two checks that he signed there is no basis for him to "get you" (or any other such vague and ambiguous claim).
The fact that he stopped payment on the checks is a little bit of a problem as this is a gift and it is hard to enforce these - you can try filing a small claims lawsuit against him for enforcement of this - but unlike a contract the courts are less likely to enforce it.
No. The fact that there is a long history of his allowing you to sign his accounts on his behalf would negate any such claim.
If he does actually contact law enforcement (which I do not see happening), your very best course of action is to retain a lawyer (do not try to discuss/explain this on your own - use a lawyer to do this for you).
But, if you choose instead to try to represent yourself - which I strongly discourage, if I were faced with the threat of criminal charges (even completely bogus ones that I knew were not going anywhere), I would want an experienced criminal attorney representing me (I wouldn't even represent myself). You can tell the officers that your husband authorized you to sign checks on his behalf and that there is a long pattern of this that will be shown by reviewing his checking account history and cancelled checks.
Unless you have a job with a security clearance or some sort of very high level/high risk job, I don't see you losing your position over the initial investigation/arrest (assuming you are actually arrested).
What usually happens in these matters is the police will investigate - they do not make an arrest on something like this until after they have completed their investigation (there is no need to do so - you are not a flight risk, there is no crime against the person (you did not assault your husband), and the issue is really is not one requiring you to be locked up while the officer investigates.
