False Claims

What can happen to the spouse that initiated the lawsuit for spousal support if it turns out the initial claim was made with false statements of need and that spouse isn’t as ‘needy’ as they stated in the complaint? What can happen if the court ordered support for over a year to the ‘falsley needy’ spouse, can the supporting spouse get their money back?

If facts are later uncovered that show the dependent spouse committed a forgery you may appeal the decsion and seek damages.
