My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: Texas
Hi. I dated a woman for 3 1/2 months. This woman became pregnant and I knew she was crazy and did not want anything to do with her. She put together a promissory note and verbally agreed to have an abortion if I paid her $20,000 credit card debt. I signed the promissory note. However, she did not have the abortion therefore I am not paying her debt. Also, the promissory not does not state that she would have the abortion in return for me to pay her debt but it does state the 2 credit card accounts and amounts that I agreed to pay. She file civil charges against me for breach of contract. Later, I requested my credit report and found that the 2 credit cards that are listed on the promissary note that I signed are on my credit card opened and closed within the 3 1/2 months I dated her. Therefore, she used my social security number and attached it to her credit card debt as a co-signer. I do not have money to get a lawyer to represent me. I have been representing myself in the family law with our son and is doing a great job. The judge noticed that all she wants is money and doesn't want me to have anything to do with my son. My question is I want to file charges against her for using my social security number without my permission. I mean why would someone legal agree to pay another person's debt when it is on their credit report and can pay it them self. 1st I would like to know if I should file civil charges against her or criminal charges against her in the state of Texas. She lives in CA which is where she filed the civil breach of contract against me. 2nd what form do I used to initiate the file? Thank you for all of your help. I truly appreciate it.
