Mechanics lien, owners ability to prove false?

I had a mechanic's lien filed from a non licensed contractor doing work on my home for a set amount for specific jobs. He was paid in full and said he was owed more than one and half times more what I paid him. His work was unacceptable and he left the job without finishing it. He did not finish 1/3 of the job that I had to have someone else do as well.

I need to list the property and now have a mechanic's lien that is fraudulent on it. How do I go about proving it is false? How do I sell the property in the meantime?
