What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Virginia
I went to court for spousal support. My lawyer assured me that I would not need to list my expenses...that spousal support only depends on income.
In court the judge asked for my expenses...I had nothing to show. My husband handed her a list of his legal "expenses". She actually cut back the amount he had been giving me voluntarialy when she saw his "expenses". A week after court I went to courthouse and saw what he said his expenses were. He committed perjury!
I asked for a new trial. My husband didn't show up. I told the judge he committed perjury. She didn't care, she said she already decided the case. I told her I didn't have an opportunity to show what my expenses were, and I wanted to give her that information. Again, she said she didn't care because she already decided the case.
How can a fair decision be made if she has only seen the "made up" expenses of one person and has no idea what the expenses of the other person is? What can I do about this judge not giving me a fair chance?
