What is the name of your state?New Jersey
I have posted before on this site with extensive history of my problem ( in case anyone needs to see said history before answering) and I am currently in the process of getting before a Judge for a hearing. I filed a motion for court order for daughters college transcripts based on the fact that ex has not supplied me with any documentation for1 1/2 years and what she finally did provide was a computer generated unofficial transcript and a copy of a bill which I believe to have been altered to include my daughters' name. Ex also filed an answer through the court in which she states that she was unaware that daughter had married on July 2 this year. Met with my attorney and we prepared my response which included invitation to wedding, copy of application for facilities where wedding took place with my ex's name, address and home phone number on it (also showed anticipated attendance of 150 guests, ), and copy of calendar of events from where the reception was held, all showing wedding date of July 2. Mt attempt to prove fraud on my ex's part is to try to get the court to obtain college records to prove that ex has also falsified info about her attending college in the hopes of recovering child support money that was paid to ex. When I prepared my original filing with the court and subsequent response to her answer my attorney had me sign a letter of oath stating that all statements set forth by me were true to my knowledge. She also signed such a document when she filed her response. I questioned my attorney about the possible repercussions for her in court when the Judge saw documented proof that she had knowingly filed false info with the court and he told me that he honestly couldn't answer that as in his 25 years of practice he had seen arguements over interpretation but never dealt with someone who knowingly lied in a filing. My question is what will happen to my ex in court ? Is there a criminal charge against lying to the court or is it contempt and will there be any harsher repercussions than her being scolded and told not to do it again? Also, in her filing she has agreed to emancipate daughter as of July 2, will my showing that she knowingly lied about daughters marriage to continue to collect weigh in any decision the Judge makes to order the college transcripts? Again, my thanks for any and all advice and help, I greatly appreciate it.
