This a a public forum , and not really the place to hire an attorney. I would recommend either avvo's find a lawyer tab, lawyers.com, or State trial attorneys association.
As an aside, if you are pro se and facing an attorney you are NOT on a level playing field and no amount of study, preparation, or research will even the score. Recommend you consult with an attorney ASAP.
You need to contact a local attorney who can assist you. Use the find a lawyer function .
No information provided in response to these questions can be relied upon in any way without further personally consulting with Attorney Kerrigan and Attorney Kerrigan consulting personally with you regarding your specific legal situation.
Avvo has a terrific "find a lawyer" tool to find a top-rated lawyer with a low contingency fee. Good luck.
Use the AVVO lawyer search feature. I suspect you may have a hard time finding someone to handle this case. Did the petition to modify with the alleged false statements get dismissed--completely? If it was not dismissed then there is no abuse of process claim. Your ex-husband can sue his own lawyer for legal malpractice if he was someone harmed but you cannot sue his lawyer for malpractice--you had no agreement with that lawyer. Are you saying the petition was sealed and the ex-wife got the file because she had access through her employment?
What are your damages??
If you feel this is the "best" answer or is "helpful," please indicate. Since I am limited to the information you provide, I cannot guarantee the accuracy of the answer. You should seek the advise of an attorney who can explore all aspects of your question. This communication does not form an attorney client relationship.
