I am not aware of any provision in Article 8 of the Family Court Act that provides for recovery of attorneys' fees. Article 8 is the section of the Family Court Act dealing with family offense petitions.
FCA 842(f) allows for the issuance of counsel fees in an Article 8 proceeding, however, same does not appear to apply to you as you were not the petitioner. That said, there are general provisions prohibiting parties from bringing frivolous proceedings and it's arguably counsel fees may be brought under such provisions. You may also sue her in small claims court for abuse of process. That said, you should schedule a consultation with a Rockland/Westchester Family Law attorney for a full assessment.

The short answer is Yes but consult with an attorney. Additionally you can report these actions to the police but consult your family court attorney first
The advice I have given does not bind the parties in any manner and is merely given as a courtesy.
You could sue for malicious prosecution. However, the best is advice is move on and let it go.
