What if my husband lied during our mediation?
When your marriage is no longer strong enough to survive, you might make the decision to go through with a divorce. It happens all the time to couples with kids, without kids, married for a short time, and married most of their lives. There are no rules when it comes to love and marriage, and many people make decisions that result in the end of their marriages all the time. When your marriage is over, there are several things you can do to make the process go faster and smoother.
The best thing you can do with your spouse when you make an agreement to call it quits is handle your personal business in an agreeable manner. Come up with a plan for your assets and debts, for your kids, and for other things you must deal with. This helps you expedite the process when it’s time to file, and it makes it much less stressful for all involved. You can handle things easier when you work together even though your marriage did not survive.
The court loves to see couples work together and handle their personal business on their own, and they even like it when you ask to go into mediation to help make decisions. Mediation involves a neutral third party who is there to help you come up with a good plan for your assets, debts, kids, and everything else involved in your divorce. A mediator is there to help so that your case doesn’t have to go to court and require a hearing with a judge. It’s a place where you can open up, make decisions, and work it out on your own.
My Spouse Lied in Mediation
What happens if he lies to the mediator? That’s a problem, and it might directly affect the way you handle your own divorce. If this happens, take notes of all his lies during the process. When you get home, find the proof of his lies. He might lie about his income so he doesn’t have to pay as much for the kids or to you if you ask for alimony. He might lie about being a cheater. He might lie about many things, and your job is to find out what he’s lying about and prove his lies.
Now you must call your attorney and provide him or her with proof of all the lies. This is going to help your case tremendously, and it’s going to make your life so much easier. Your truthfulness is going to benefit you as much as his lies are going to hurt him in the long run. You have the option to go through with this as quickly as you want, and having your attorney on your side is helpful.
When your spouse lies during mediation, you get to prove the lies and see the divorce head a little more in your favor. It’s not ideal, but there is no reason you and your kids should suffer because your spouse is lying to get out of paying for what he has created. It’s time for you to find the proof and get through to the judge by providing all the proof you can. Call your attorney and ask how you can make this happen.
