    What law prevents the submitting of false documents to court

    Ex-wife has submitted her own pape wok showing the income from my current wife stating it was my income from a second job to the court during a Spousal Modificaiton Hearing. The judge believed her and did not modify the Spousal Modificaiton based on the income of "my second income". The judge even listed the amount of income, matching my wifes W-2 to the penny, in her minute entyr and denied the Mofification. I was involved in a family emergency and could not ask for a Motion to Reconsider nor an appeal. The new judge stated it was too late to do anything about the previous error. I now feel the need to sue the ex-wife for submitting false documentation to the court. I am now representing my self in this case. Any ideas??

    The judge did NOT modify due to the fraudulent claim?  Then no harm, no foul.

    The judge did NOT modify the Spousal Maintenance based on the amont of income I show when you add in my current wifes income. I feel the Spousal Maintenance requiement should have been modified, lowered, as my income is now less than the ex-wifes!

    It's hard to know the reason the judge wouldn't look at this evidence; sometimes it's helpful to have an attorney, as they usually know a lot about local law that the average person doesn't...

    You might consider a consultation for apr $100-200 for guidance; it seems something else may be going on here.

    I know of no specific law that applies; usually these errors are corrected in family court.  Perhaps your attorney can give you specifics on local laws?  Or advise you as to the reason the judge didn't look at it?

    I suppose you can take her to small claims court with little investment, but it's not a sure thing.

    There's a law against murder. People still do it.

    You are missing the point of this post. I want to file a lawsuit against her to recover the excess alimony awarded to her because she filed false information to the court. This false information was used to determine her alimony award which is now greater than my income.

    The question.........what law do I reference in my lawsuit against her for submitting of fasle documentation to the court? This is in Arizona.

    The time to address the veracity of her evidence was at the time it was submitted, not in a separate action. I doubt any court other than the original court has jurisdiction over the issue. Unless you have grounds for an appeal I simply do not see a way to accomplish this.
