Your wife can pursue you for libel and slander and the damages would be the amount of lost Business revenue now and in the future. Your defense to this claim will be that the statements are true. The polygraph does not prove the statements are true. It is one piece of evidence that supports your version is the true version. However polygraphs are not permissible in court. I would recommend calling the medical board in Oklahoma and reporting the prescription violations in order to allow the appropriate authorities to investigate. That would be a much safer course of action then posting to Facebook and probably more effective. Damaging your wife's business would also have a negative impact on any claim you might have through your marriage in the business as a marital asset that you can otherwise be entitled to a portion of. Since this matter appears to involve a marriage with some assets and also protective orders the may have been wrongfully obtained I would highly suggest obtaining a local Oklahoma attorney to represent your interests as soon as possible.
I understand not wanting to be the nice guy and just take all the crap she is giving. I also dont want to do a knee jerk reaction.You need to be smart and use the system to your advantage. I do think you can and should use the issue of the prescription as part of your negotiations, but you need to do it carefully. It can be considered extortion to threaten the filing of a criminal action in exchange for the payment of money or the settlement of a case. Please don't misunderstand, I do think he you can use this fact to your advantage you just need to do so carefully and not make it a quid pro quo for settling the divorce case. It could possibly be phrased as wife I'm sure would not want Business evaluators or or regulatory authorities sifting through the businesses records as that could cause a diminishing in value for each of you and also licensure problems.
Please accept my responses to your question at your earliest opportunity. Otherwise it stays open on my end as if I did not respond. Thanks you.
