False accusations and mental anguish; do I have a case?

Submitted By: Sarah (Wylie, TX, USA)

My ex husband has filed several lawsuits against me, all with false claims, and never until now had consequence, except the loss of money to pay attorneys. Now, my ex husband, due to the fact that his girlfriend became pregnant and he could no longer pay child support to me for our kids, brainwashed my son to lie in court about me.

He also called CPS on me and my fiance (we were cleared) causing my children embarrassment at school, and also causing issues between my fiance and his ex wife regarding their daughter, who became involved. Due to his lies, he received temporary custody, and I have had to pay over $10,000 so far in attorneys fees.

The worst part about it is what he has done to my children. I have not seen my 13 year old son for more than 5 minutes at a time since the case in which he lied to the judge. I missed my daughter’s 5th birthday, and 1st Christmas program/performance at her school. “Someone” sent my fiance an anonymous letter in the mail stating ridiculous lies that I cheat on him.

I have just been a miserable wreck; at home and at work. My job is suffering, my relationship with my fiance is suffering. We are building a house and all of our money to put down went to attorney fees. I have been placed on a humiliating “soberlink” alcohol device that is embarrassing enough, but he told my kids and friends about it and now, the kids think that I did something wrong; even though I did not.

This whole thing is horrible, and know that his family is quite wealthy and will continue to pay for his legal tactics. I think that there is money to be made from them, and if I win the case, I would gladly hand over the winnings for the sake of relief from his harassment.

My ex husband never wanted anything to do with my kids until he needed money to support this new girl and new child. He never once expressed any concern to me, and truly threw me “under the bus” with all of this.

I just want my kids back, and to live without the constant fear of what he will do next. I want a normal life. What can I do to stop this?

Dear Sarah,

It is our policy not to interfere with the attorney-client relationship. While you are quite clearly under a terrible amount of stress, your best interests will be served by heeding the advice and counsel of your attorney.

Generally speaking, Child Protective Services is an independent Texas State agency designed to protect children from physical and mental abuse. In your case, as long as there doesn’t exist evidence you have abused or neglected your children, you shouldn’t have anything to worry about.

Children, especially younger children in school can be quite cruel to fellow students. You might consider changing schools, or seeking some type of counseling for you and your children in an effort to cope with potential abuse by other students. Finally, if you can’t continue to pay your attorney, and you qualify, you may be entitled to free legal representation from the Texas Legal Aid Society.

    SOBERLINK – My personal experience with a Mobile Alcohol Breathalyzer that is classified as a class 1 medical device in California.

    A class 1 medical device is in the same category as a bed pan you piss in. Class 1 medical device needs no human clinical trials, no scientific data, and no certification and is exempt from the FDA regulatory process.

    This Breathalyzer is NOT FDA approved, does NOT have 510K certification, and is NOT DOT approved, and yet it is used in court, probation, by law officials, with family members and rehabs to determine one’s breathe alcohol content.

    This device has reported false positives, erroneous information, failed to send test, failed to perform as manufacturer claimed, etc. I’ve proven this through laboratory tests I submitted myself to, picture of error codes from device, various documents, and emails.

    The device is defective and the report is in serious error. This device caused a warrant for my arrest, jail, legal fees, medical conditions and more.

    I’ve researched this device and company and have clearly documented all I have stated and more.

    The manufacturer sends out a report that is used by a monitoring system, probation and law officials to judge one’s sobriety and determine the degree of consequences, if any. (This report is taken as gospel).

    The alcohol device has been out on the market for approximately 2 years, and is being used by people every day. I filed a complaint with the FDA.

    The FDA has researched the matter. They are in agreement with my findings and is in the process of pursuing the manufacturer “SOBERLINK”. User beware…
