Then tell her if she won't let you guide her to knowing what to say or do after you defend her life, you just won't defend her life -- because it's difficult to decide if it's worth it to do so if you might have to spend years in prison because of stuff she might screw up and say afterward -- all because she would not let you inform her properly.

It's well within the realm of possibility, and something that bears considering.

Repeat after me "I was in fear of my and my families lives", "I thought they were going to kill us" and tell your family this.
A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

From the family. Keep it short, facts only, don't start running off at the mouth. That's when you/they say too much. The lawyer can fill in the other stuff.. Let them know that the more they say CAN hurt YOU. If they or you are put in the back of the squad car watch what you say there. They routinely have recorders inside just for that purpose. Remember what you tell the police can and will be used against you in a court of law. You don't have to be under arrest for this to happen. If you have to shoot under the proper guidelines, what you have to say will have the most weight against you, but offered up statements by you family may make it harder for you.
Lawyers may not be cheap, but without one most times your toast!
Find a SD lawyer and put his/her number in your cell phones speed dial. The lawyer should be the second call you make after a SD action..
