In a family court matter, a petitioner for more support funds completed a form, signed it (perjury?) certifying he was a resident in a county he does not live in. Is the readily provable false statement grounds for dismissal?
The state is New York, and I am not a party to the action. I am curious how to attack this type of situation. I could not find anything in Siegel's New York Practice.
In summary, the application form (Petition) and applicant statement is impeached by their testimony on the form, under penalty of perjury. (I am not certain that the penalty of perjury statement is appropriate on such a form, but that is a different matter.) Certainly one could attack the credibility of the applicant, but I am curious if such an issue is more fundamental than that.
