My wife was falsely accused of pointing a gun in the face of a neighbor. The neighbor made this accusation during a hearing of another issue. So what legal avenues can she take against this neighbor?

A CD is a conviction. It is unusual for a retail theft case to be disposed of with CD so there are probably other facts that you have not mentioned. You might not be able to have your case expunged.
Please read: Here are the forms you will need: http://www.illinoiscourts.gov/Forms/approved/expungement/expungement.asp
You can seek expungement without an attorney. If and when you qualify for expungement can be reviewed at the following links.
For Cook County:

or for outside Cook but still in Illinois, go to: http://www.illinois.gov/osad/Expungement/Pages/default.aspx
I would suggest you first obtain a certified copy of the disposition of your case because if you succeed in having it sealed, it will never be available to you again and you might need it in the future to explain your background. You can get it from the Clerk of the Circuit Court where your case was heard. Then file for both expungement and sealing.See question

Unless there is a court order requiring you to transport the children, you are not required to do so. Technically, the children must be 18 to decide whether or not to see a parent but based upon the few facts presented, you have a good argument in the event he actually brings a motion to modify or enforce parenting time. P)lease speak to your former lawyer or consult with one or more new ones to more details advice and to discuss your options.See question
