What to do if my husband lying stating that he does not have my jewelry in his possession?
Question Details: I got served with divorce papers. Now I need to submit sworn financial statements to the court. My husband is lying on the documents that he has no jewelry in his possession which I received as gift for the wedding. He is claiming that I brought the jewelry with me. I am out of state currently, I left the house once I was served. I brought only a small amount of jewelry with me but he has all of my other jewelry with him. He is lying he has nothing in his possession and I took everything with me. What can I do if he is lying about it on legal documents? How can I claim my jewelry back?
First, you should make a list of all the jewelry that you believe exist. Then, you should obtain all receipts from credit cards, bank statements and/or the stores in which you purchased it from to evidence your list.
Then serve a written list of questions called interrogatories asking your husband to certify under oath as to his recollection of the jewelry. Following these responses, you can then take a deposition and cross-examine him with all the records that you have regarding the purchase of jewelry that conflict with the answers that he put in response to the interrogatories.
