Hello and thank you for using our service. My name isXXXXX and I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help you. I just ask for two things: 1) Before you sign off, please remember to rate me positively as that is the only way that I am paid and your question does not close after you rate me so I can still answer additional questions without additional charge if you have follow-ups even weeks or months later; and, 2) IF I have bad news for you, please remember I am only the messenger. When you rate me, it is my service to you that you rate, not whether the news is good or bad. I will try my best to give you a solution, but sometimes the law does not have a good one.
I understand your situation and I will address your specific questions:Would she have any legal claims to make?
She can report it to whomever she likes, but if there is no evidence (and it doesn't look like there is), it is her that could get in trouble for filing a false police report or making false accusations. A deportation
would happen if he was convicted of something serious. What type of actions would you recommend my husband take?
If I was him, I would avoid any contact with her so that they could not get into any kind of physical altercation that could cause him to be convicted. That's the one thing that I would make sure of, that they do not come into contact until all of this blows over. So no family outings or get-togethers. Therapy would be ok as long as there is always an independent, non-family, non-friend witness around. In other words, they should not be alone or with family in a waiting room, for example.
Other than that, if she damages his reputation with false allegations, he could sue her in civil court for damages.
Please let me know if you have additional questions and please do not forget to rate my service to you (not the state of the law) as that is the only way that I can get credit for my assistance to you. Even after you rate the service, I can still answer additional questions for you without additional charge. If you do rate me positively, a bonus is always appreciated. If you would like to request me in the future, just go to http://www.justanswer.com/law/expert-guillermosenmartin/. Thank you!
