A: Can I sue _______” is not a criminal defense question; It is a civil law question. Last I checked this was still America, and in America you can sue pretty much anyone for pretty much anything. Whether or not a) you can find a lawyer to sign her / his name to the paperwork, b) your lawsuit survives a motion for summary judgment / to dismiss, c) you get a favorable judgment, d) your defendant is collectable or e) you ever see a dime is both beyond my ability to predict and is anyone’s guess. If you want to increase your odds at getting a competent answer then you should repost this question and list “lawsuits and disputes” and not “criminal defense” as a practice area. In fact, I will do this for you….
Q: Are criminal charges possible against ex-wife for identity asset theft?
A: Almost anything is possible. Probability is another matter entirely. If you think that you have been criminally victimized then call the cops. They will either take a report or not (advising that it is a “civil matter”. If you still feel that you wish to pursue criminal charges then you should be aware that in Florida victims of crimes have rights, both constitutional (s. 16, Art. I of the Florida’s State Constitution) and by statute (see: Chapter 960 Florida Statutes). Still, in Florida, the State Attorney is empowered to bring criminal charges to bear on behalf of all of the people of the State, the victim being only one of those millions of people (albeit usually an important one to the success of their case). If you want to increase your odds at having the State pursue your interests then you can hire your own criminal defense lawyer to serve as your Victim’s Right’s Advocate.
Again, no one can control what the State does on behalf of the people, but you will increase your odds at achieving a favorable outcome if you have an effective victim’s rights advocate pursuing your agenda. Many criminal defense lawyers serve as effective victim’s rights advocates.
I hope that I have been helpful in answering your questions.
