How do you file charges for perjury against another person?

Someone tried to get me arrested and evicted by filing false allegations against me. They later recanted their story after 3 arbitration/court appearances. I also had 4 heart attacks during this stressful time. Now they are filing additional false charges. What can be done to stop this non-nonsensical behavior?

    You likely need to get a Harassment Restraining Order against this individual. The false claims you refer to do not become "perjury" until the person lies while under oath. If the false accusations involve false reporting of crimes to the authorities, those same authorities can prosecute him for making those false claims.

    Go to the police and report this crime. Also you could sue them for damages.

    It wouldn't be perjury unless it was given under oath. You may have a case for filing a false police report. That would be up to the prosecutor. You may be able to sue them in civil court though. Consult with a civil attorney in your area.

    The first thing you should do is to see an attorney. Perjury is a crime, but the charges are normally brought by the prosecutor in your county. The same general procedure goes for filing a false police report. I would suggest you buy an hour or two with an attorney and explain all of the situations, and then take their counsel. There are several causes of action for malicious prosecution.
