My ex had me arrested, and the charges were dropped by the DA, I was charged with 2 felonies.

Sacramento, CA |

. I went to my bank, I've been with for 10 years to cash a check that he'd written for spousal. My ex told the police more lies, to ensure I was taken to jail. The case was dropped, but this may keep me from finding work in healthcare. I was extremely humiliated, embarrassed, degraded. It was the worst thing I've ever been through. I have been pretty much blackballed at both of my banks one of which my car loan is at and they repo'd due to my ex telling them i have no $ to pay! when in fact I did, he just wasn't paying me on time.

He also used CLETS to find out info on my boyfriend, which i'm sure is illegal in CA.

Do I have a civil case?

Clets abuse has some criminal aspect to it, and much depends on whether the ex is in law enforcement. The pattern you describe is intentional infliction of emotional distress.

You may want to start thinking like a victim if you want to win.

Have you considered restraining order? intentional interference with contract (B&P 1700?)

Hire a good civil attorney, pay him well and proceed;
Do all of the victim actions (no-contact order, stalking complaint, police report)

Good Luck with your forward advance.

He is in law enforcement and my ex has met my boyfriend in person before. My ex-husband decided to get my boyfriends license plate by taking pictures of the plate during our exchange with my 2 young boys and looked up to see his record and is trying to use it for personal gain. He is going out of his way to cause me stress.

The attorney you hire will also consider the advantages and disadvantages of contacting the police agency. If you are getting money and if he is fired or suspended, it may disrupt that flow. Hire an attorney without further delay.


Ask a civil attorney. You are in the criminal section. Good luck.
