How do you stop a vicious female from continously fileing false charges on you during a divorce.
Optional Information: San Antonio, Texas
Unfortunately, these types of things happen constantly in divorce matters. The best way that I have found to at least protect oneself from these charges is to have absolutely no contact with the person, even on the telephone, by mail or through friends. Make all contact through your attorney and always, always have someone with you as a witness to vouch for your whereabouts. I know that this does not sound encouraging, but little can be done to actually stop the party from filing charge after charge, so you just have to place yourself in position to be protected and have a defense to the charges. Additionally, if the charges are proven false by the police, then you can press charges against her for filing false police reports, but this is for charges that are proven false, not for charges that the police merely could not prove one way or another and did not charge you on.If you found my answer helpful, please click on the GREEN ACCEPT button.
