Thank you for the post, I am happy to assist you by answering your questions. Unfortunately not, the accusations in a motion are generally subject to a degree of immunity for a defamation action unless the motion is published or made available to the public, which a divorce motion rarely is. Further, you would have to show that you suffered some injury. This does not mean you cannot sue, I just want you to have a realistic view of the suit. The most efficient remedy would be to notify the bar association.
