My wife had a...

My wife had a year long affair with a judge from another state (Kentucky). It ended when I discovered it 8 months ago. I’m going to inform his wife anonymously but am concerned that if she somehow discovered I was the one who sent the letter/email along with phone records, could she take legal action if her anger is misdirected toward the messenger(me)?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

She Kentucky, me Florida

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No

My question was if she discovered I’m the one that informed her, could she or he take any action against me for informing her? He is a sitting judge so he would be Knowledgeable of any and all legal tools to come after me.
The truth is a defense. If you have evidence that he has an affair and cheated on his wife and you want to advise her of the same, there is nothing illegal about this, since it is the truth. It is not as though you are trying to slander him with false statements and allegations and there is nothing that prevents you from letting his wife know about his conduct.

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.
