Husband lied on divorce complaint
My husband & I have been separated for about 10 months. He recently filed for divorce (pro bono) but on the divorce complaint but he lied. I have filed answer to complaint. We r n Alabama .
1. He stated we had no children together - we have an adopted child together (for 5 yrs). . What will happen when we go to court about this?
2. Stated we had no outstanding debts together- due to his filing "procedure " and his casino winnings , we have outstanding taxes due. He may b going to jail . What do I do to not b stuck w that debt? ( he took care of all the bills and filed all the Taxes)
3 He has opened 2 cr cards in my name since we have been seperated that I didn't know about at the time but do now (ea have balances ). One of which idk it was him who opened it and when I was contacted by cc company i thought it was stolen identity which a report was filed through the credit card company it wasn't until a later call with them that I figured out it was him.
4. He now lives in a separate county than I do and the county we were married in . I was told the divorce has to be filed in the county the marriage took place or where I live. Is that true & if so Will that affect the divorce procedure ?
5.I was a stay at home mom for the last 5 yrs . He has given me less than $100 to help w our child or pay any bills since he moved out. ( I didn't press it Due to losing his job due to legal issues he got in, but he has held several jobs since & now has a Decent job but can't ever help because something always comes up or he has other bills to pay.
6. He was having an affair & is now living w another woman which he denied but I found out when he took our child for the weekend w his children from prev marriage (telling me they were gonna stay at a hotel because he was supposedly living in his car at the time) & not only did he take our child to their house he told her that his gf was a friend of his other children & he also allowed our child to sleep w his gf. Since then I had not allowed her to spend the night with him because of that but I have not kept him from her. He knows he can come here and visit her anytime even offered to leave so he could stay here overnight. He hAs broken many promises to her about coming to see her.
7. Our home is in foreclosure but since my name is not on the mortgage loan I cannot find out anything regarding the situation other than I have 10 days to get out now. I have asked but He will not call to get specific information for me regarding details of this.
I do not have money for lawyer & I do not know what to do or what to make sure I take to court next month!

Re: Husband Lied in Divorce
A couple ways to show that your husband has lied during the divorce settlement is to provide records and statements of the facts in the dispute. Try to gather all the documents that contradict to his story and allegations. Keep a log and outline of every false statement that your husband says about the marriage, income, and other things that you are aware of. These can be all financial documents, birth certificates, adoption papers, and any record/reports that you can use to fight the false statements.
I think it is important to retain an experienced divorce attorney for this matter. Many attorneys will work with you on a contingency basis if you do not have the funds right away. The reason an attorney is important in this matter because it will help protect your rights and assets in the long run, which you cannot do yourself.
Hiring a attorney can help you understand the best way to present all the evidence that you gathered, protect the rights that you have, and make sure that your husband does not get an advantage in the divorce settlement because of false statements and misrepresentation.
