Default Arrested on charges filed by my mother.

I was arrested on charges filed by my mother. She has accused me of using her credit card without authorization and charges of theft, forgery, false impersonation, and possession of stolen property.

My question is can I legally file police reports against her while awaiting pretrial date? Am I technically allowed to file a criminal complaint against her? The reason being is she has now filed for a custody hearing in an attempt to gain visitation rights and/or partial custody of our children. The complaints I have are witnessed incidents and show instability and abuse and attempted kidnapping.

I wish to inform you that you can file your criminal charges against mother. You may be required to show evidence of criminal violations alleged by you. As your complaint is independent information to police regarding violation of law thus you may report your matter and complaint by mother may not affect such charges.

Sure.

But you are delusional if you think anybody will take it seriously since it's coming after you got arrested on criminal charges reported by your mother.

Why didn't you report those "crimes" when they happened?

That's another reason nobody is going to take your report seriously.

I suggest you forget about all that and concentrate on facing the charges for which you got arrested.

Your mother didn't file anything except maybe a police report.

So sad that a mother does that with her own child. It's a shame you two couldn't work something out.

Can a mother withdraw the charges if the child agrees to make payments?
Just asking because we have a somewhat similar situation in our family, unfortunately.

Then start your own thread and don't hijack someone else's.

"Similar" is not "same".

Once and arrest is made the issue is in the hands of the prosecutor.
The mother could ask the prosecutor to drop the matter and the mother could explain the proposed resolution but the mother cannot demand it.

The decision unfortunately has to be made by the authorities at that point.

You could not file a criminal complaint against your mother for the reasons stated in the question.

I can't believe a mother and daughter cannot work out their own issues and resolve this as a family matter.
Something certainly went wrong long ago.
