My Spouse Called Witnesses In Our Brooklyn Divorce Who Lied On The Stand. Can I File A Perjury Complaint?

Divorce trials in Brooklyn are almost always highly emotional, and when a spouse calls a friend, relative, or colleague to provide testimony against you, your impulse can be to go to war over the things they say.

You do have the right to go to police with a perjury complaint stemming from your divorce trial

But unless you have rock solid evidence that the witness knowingly and willfully lied on the stand, you shouldn’t expect much, if anything, to be done by prosecutors.

When your spouse is knowingly putting witnesses on the stand who commit perjury, you have to present a case that rebuts the allegations against you, and presents the truth with as much evidence as possible.
Your attorneys should be up to the task of cross examining witnesses in a way that can show the inconsistencies in false stories, and demonstrate to the judge that your spouse is not acting in good faith.

That’s exactly what the attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino do for our clients every time a divorce goes to trial.

We protect you from vindictive spouses who will stop at nothing to win, and fight to get you the best possible settlement at the end of your divorce.
