What can I submit to the judge to prove my wife is lying on court documents?

Divorce attorney Jason BowmanQuestion:

My wife is making false statements about me on forms that are submitted to the court. What can I submit to the judge to prove that the information she is providing is incorrect?



I would always recommend talking to an attorney in your jurisdiction prior to doing anything with the Court, so that you are aware of all the rules of procedure and your rights as a party to a divorce litigation.

It is hard for me to ascertain exactly what you are asking in your question because I am unaware of what “forms” your wife would be filing with the Court. Generally speaking, in almost all states you should be allowed to file a responsive pleading to the Court indicating the errors in your wife’s filing.

However, you should talk to an attorney to find out what your specific rules of civil procedure require and if there are any local rules that address this issue.

legal assistant and helpful girlfriendMy boyfriend is dealing with this right now. HIs ex-wife has lied about everything in court from day one. He recently took her back to court for custody, only this time I helped him prepare to prove her lies. I usually butt out of anything having to do with his kids/divorce, but I was tired of the court system ruling in her favor. I served subpoenas for him. If you go to the circuit clerk and get a subpoena, it only costs 50 cents here in WV, you can have anyone over the age of 18… Read more »
