Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
When family members are in a situation such as the one you described it impacts the entire family. I would assume your brother is represented by an attorney, if not then he should seek legal representation as soon as possible. If your brother's spouse is giving false statements to the court then she will have to be able to prove such allegations. She will also have to give under oath which is a legal obligation to tell the truth when testifying. She would have to attest to the truth or have legal consequences of being guilty of perjury. If your brother is represented the process would include fact finding which requires the children evaluated mentally as well as psychologically. Her mental history may also become in to play. I would encourage your brother to seek legal advise. The court will not take her word without evidence to support her allegations. I hope this helps .... take care
