Hello,
My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with your question.
Can you give a bit more background and then ask your question? Is your spouse being threatened, for example? What is it you want to do about this/what would you like to know?

No he receives emails from my sister n law with so many false accusations about me. Our marriage is very strong but I'm tired of her false nonsense and ridiculous accusations and I was just wondering if maybe there was a legal action I can finally do that can put a stop to this?
Lawyer: Zoey, JD, Attorney replied 3 years ago
Your spouse may be able to seek a restraining order to stop her harassing him with her emails, if he is bothered by them. I don't know what state she lives in, but if her communication is unwelcome, that's one way to shut it down.
If she is spreading untrue stories about you knowing that they are untrue, that would make out some of the elements of defamation of character but to sue, you'd need to have experienced actual economic damages as a result of the lies she's telling. So I don't see a civil suit here and a restraining order may be your best recourse.
Your and your husband may be able to enlist the aid of the police to put her on notice that you will go after her for harassment if she doesn't leave him alone. Sometimes, police are willing to make a phone call to give a warning that has a better chance of working than if you said something about this for yourself.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
