We had court 10 days ago to determine modification of custody agreement; she wants to move out of state with her new boyfriend. She has withheld any information about the new boyfriend from me, and the minor child said he was instructed by his mother to give us a false last name for the new boyfriend. On the stand, under oath, she testified that his last name is Richardson, although we suspected from Facebook that his last name is actually Rich. Over the weekend, we discovered through Google that his last name IS Rich, and that he is a registered sex offender for indecent sexual contact with a minor. Our custody attorney seems very unconcerned about both issues, the sex offender status and the perjury to conceal his sex offender status. He says the judge most likely won't care and it won't change his mind. How can that be true? She perjured herself to conceal from myself and the court that he is a sex offender and the minor child is frequently left alone with this person. What do we do now???
This is not actually a criminal defense question. If you believe that a crime was committed, you report it to the police.

If you are unhappy with your present attorney, you are free to find another attorney more to your liking.
Tread carefully, however. I find it hard to believe that your attorney would be indifferent to this 'revelation' if he believed the information not be true.
How can you prove anything from Facebook ?
