Patrick DiChiro's answer Without knowing facts of abuse claim, I would be careful in presenting any evidence to the police. Particularly, I would not offer a verbal or written statement. If you have documents that exonerate you, you may want to obtain counsel in order to negotiate with the police. I would not do it yourself.
Joseph Jaap's answer Talk to the police and file a report. The prosecutor would determine whether to bring criminal charges. If you file for divorce, the court can order her to stop using your identity and to be responsible to pay back all the debt she incurred in your name. Use the Find a Lawyer tab to retain a local divorce attorney.
Matthew Williams' answer How did the police acquire his phone? How did they acquire the picture? Was the phone locked? They can talk to him and even arrest him without parental consent, but getting into locked cellphones now requires a warrant under most circumstances. With kids, there are a few circumstances it may not such as if a teacher got the password from the child, opened the phone, and gave the picture to the police, or if the child consented to the search (though consent can get complicated with children and...
Matthew Williams' answer If you did not know, and did not have reason to suspect he was fleeing, you shouldn't be. But, if approached by authorities, you should be very careful about what you say. Speak to a lawyer first.
Joseph Jaap's answer Anyone can sue anybody for anything. But they have to provide proof that person promised to pay it back, and that it was a loan --- not a gift. If nothing is in writing, and the borrower claims it was a gift, and there are no other witnesses, then the plaintiff probably won't win the case. A case can be filed in small claims court up to $6000, or in municipal court up to $15,000.
Matthew Williams' answer The police can question a child without his or her parent(s) present, yes. But a child has the same rights as anyone not to talk to the police if he or she does not want to. Why do they want to talk to a child that is neither a suspect nor a witness?
Matthew Williams' answer As the victim of a crime, he is entitled to restitution for the damage done by the offender. You should get in touch with the prosecutor and provide him or her with proof of the costs. He could also file a civil lawsuit against her. But, a word of warning. Money doesn't magically appear because the court says someone has to pay. If she doesn't have any money to take, he may have a hard time collecting.
Gary Kollin's answer You notice there is a limitation of amount of characters. That is so you can write your question without all the extraneous material like "poor boy" and "not to mention many hours of legal work".
I am not trying to be an English teacher, but you have run on sentences, no punctuation, no capitalization and abbreviations which are not universal. I cannot understand what you are asking.
I suggest you rewrite the question succinctly and grammatically correct
Matthew Williams' answer You can be punished by law for beating on anyone. Assault is illegal. How old are these boys? Perhaps the police believe this situation is better handled by parents and teachers than police officers and judges.
Matthew Williams' answer It’s legal. How much of their questioning can be used, and for what purpose, may become an issue later particularly if they charge him with a criminal offense, and depending upon his age, maturity, intelligence, and whether they Mirandized him prior to any police questioning.
Joseph Jaap's answer Report the threats to the police and seek a protection order to order the person to leave the house and stay away. If that does not succeed, then you could proceed with an eviction action, but that process could take several weeks. If you just change the locks, install a security system, and keep the person out, the person might sue you for improper eviction, and perhaps the court might order you to pay for the person's inconvenience, but if that is what it takes to stay safe, then you might...
