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?
