Please do not post the admission of a crime on a public forum like this. It makes a case so much easier for the prosecution when a criminal defendant posts information on a public forum. You did not even read the license but just signed it in front of a notary, court clerk. When you signed, you were stating that the information was true and accurate. You swore to the accuracy. I am not sure whether this will fall into an official proceeding category, but if it does, you could be charged with perjury.
R. Jason de Groot, Esq. We do not have an attorney-client relationship. I am not your lawyer. The statements I make do not constitute legal advice. Any statements made by me are based upon the limited facts you have presented, and under the premise that you will consult with a local attorney. This is not an attempt to solicit business. This disclaimer is in addition to any disclaimers that this website has made. I am only licensed in Florida.
I agree with Mr. DeGroot, and would also suggest that you get an attorney to represent you in this divorce. You cannot threaten someone with the revelation of a crime in order to obtain results in a civil case - that is in itself another crime. However, he can't refuse to divorce you, and making a big stink about it would look bad. You should be able to get a relatively reasonable divorce without spending a fortune if you are represented by a reasonable attorney and you both act like adults during the process. Should you choose to marry again, you may want to consider having a PI do a background check on your intended and maybe getting some premarital counseling so you actually know the guy from the inside out instead of the other way around. It might make the ninth time a charm:)
