Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If he is telling everyone she is working with them as an informant, which places her in danger, the first thing you need to do is get her an attorney to seek her release. Second, the attorney will assist her in filing a complaint with the police department internal affairs division, since this is inappropriate conduct and it is something that can actually cause her physical harm.
She will also need to address the divorce by filing an answer. However, you need to start by getting her the attorney to get her released and also to file the complaint with the police against the officer.
