If someone falsely accuses you of stealing you can deny the accusation. Without more facts, I'm not sure what to tell you. I don't know if there are criminal charges against you, whether any harm has resulted from the false accusation, or what you want to do.

You need to find an attorney as soon as possible to help you sort through the child support issue.This is going to be very fact specific and the attorney will need all the information available about the current ordered support and the warrant. Talk to several attorneys to find the one you like best because you'll be working with them a lot during this process.

you need to dispute the false credit reporting directly with the credit reporting agencies and the credit card company.

You can go to our law firm website and click on the link Credit Reporting Errors for detailed and specific instructions on what the letter that your wife will need to sign. Our firm name is Humphreys Wallace Humphreys which you should be able to locate with a search. You can also go to identify theft.gov and obtain more information. Contact an attorney who handles ID...
