What does the Order pertain to ? What proof do you have of the perjury?
my mother had a business overseas (in the Philippines). It was also managed by my dad. During their divorce, the plaintiff (my dad) claimed that the business made over three thousand dollars a month. the defendant (my mother) did not have proof during the time of the court hearings (which was eight years ago) and thus the court believed the plaintiff and issued a judgement that the business be awarded to the plaintiff as well as 32,000 for the past year it was active and plus 3,000. a month.
Here is the question or questions: one,
he claimed that he could not get the business because he was part of the business. However we now have proof that the plaintiff was a stockholder and thus could have gotten the business at any time.
two: he claimed it made three thousand gross. truth is it grossed less than 2,000. we have bank statements to prove this.
Three: the business was disbanded over three years ago. But the courts are still expecting her to make payments?
Is there any way we can challenge this court order?
And thank your for the information
I suggest, she can file a Modification This would be done in the court that issued the Court Order. And she can site the perjury as a basis for the modification.
Once the modification is filed, it needs to be served onto the other party and then a hearing will be established and your Mother can bring in her evidence and request a reduction in the payment based on her evidence that it was inaccurate information provided at the time of the court's decision.
