Wife disputes signed sep agreement


Dear out2getme:

Greetings. Yes, of course you have a chance of proving she is a liar. I think that you are on the right track in protecting yourself, but I would also advise you to retain an attorney. Thank you and good luck.

My wife and I separated 6 weeks ago and signed a separation agreement 3 weeks ago. I just got served with papers stating that she wants to toss out the agreement because I supposedly threatened, forced, coerced, etc her to sign it. She says I held her down and bruised her (not true). She came to my house and we hashed out the final terms and I printed the agreement. We then left my house (she even let me ride in the same car with her) to the local bank to sign it with a notary. Do I have a chance of proving she is a liar? I spoke with the notary two days ago but she does not remember us. All she could say is that she did not remember notarizing anything where she felt like there was something up. I asked her about the security video and she gave me a number to call with the banks security operations but that got me nowhere. I really don’t want to lose my house and my daughter because she decided she got ‘screwed’. Those were her words to me. She even blatantly told my mother to her face that she was only doing this because she felt like she didnt get anything after the fact. She says because she is woman and that I don’t stand a chance. She is a very talented liar. Any advice greatly appreciated.
