we are not US citizens.ex-husband filed divorce petition in NY court. we have a daughter due to marriage. daughter is 4 years old.he did not mention about child birth in his divorce petition. As i could not pay the court fee, court declared me default and granted divorce to him . court did not grant any child support. Now I live in china and my ex-husband moved from New york state to some other state in USA. To avoid child support, he did not mention about child birth.as he cheated the court, I would like to file perjury case against him. where I Have to file this case ( in new york court or the court in teh state where he presently lives now)? Do I need to physically live in US to file perjury case? can i hire an attorney who can file perjury case and represent myself in US court?
You can't file a perjury case, only a prosecutor can.
Under the rules governing the conduct of attorneys in New York it may be necessary to remind you that this answer could be considered attorney advertising.
Perjury is a crime so only a prosecutor can bring it. I do not believe there is a civil action for perjury.
I am a former federal and State prosecutor and now handle criminal defense and personal injury/civil rights cases. Feel free to check out my web site and contact me at (212) 385-8015 or via email at [email protected] The above answer is for informational purposes only and not meant as legal advice.
You need to consult with a matrimonial attorney in person, as soon as possible. If it has been less than a year since the Judgment was entered, you may be able to have your default vacated.
