I got into a domestic situation with my husband who is an NYPD officer and my mother who has never liked my husband coersed me into adding to my statement now im realising what she made me do im trying to rectify the situation...of course there's the issue of him looking his job but i just want to keep my statement as true as possible
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I feel like out of her dis like for my husband she may be adding false statements
Lawyer: DanLegal, Lawyer replied 2 months ago

okay - what exactly did you say in your statement. You can of course always refute what your mother states in her statement. However, you could be opening yourself up to legal trouble if you recant your statement.

I said he restrained me at times a few years ago and its been an issue off and on over 9 years...They asked me if I reported it and i said no they asked me why not and i said it wasn't a serious situation
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Then they asked me if this was the only incident dance he's been an officer and unsaid yes
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I said yes*
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Since*
Lawyer: DanLegal, Lawyer replied 2 months ago

okay - there doesn't seem to be anything of major legal concern in that statement. Did you have any bruising on your arms from being "restrained" or anything of that nature?

Customer reply replied 2 months ago

I want to know if they can prosecute him criminally
Lawyer: DanLegal, Lawyer replied 2 months ago

It would be very difficult for him to get prosecuted without your input. The prosecutor would have to have you testify to go forward with the charge. And it does not sound like you want to do that.

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.
