Hello: This is Attorney Phillips. Welcome to Justanswer! I am reviewing your post, and I will post my response very shortly. Thank you for your patience.
HUSBAND FILED A PETITION FOR DIVORCE AND LIED 5 TIMES ON THE PETITION. DID HE COMMIT PERJURY OR SOMETHING FOR LYING OF A LEGAL DOCUMENT.
Response: He committed fraud on the Court by lying on the papers submitted to the Court. She should bring this to the attention of the Court. Also and more importantly, eventhough she does not have means to hire an Attorney, she can still get an Attorney and have that Attorney petition the Court to order the husband to pay for her Attorney's fees. That's how this is handled. The Court should allow him to use marital funds to pay for his own Attorney but denying his wife the same opportunity. There should be a level playing field.
