Legal Question in Real Estate Law in Georgia

My ex husband and I claimed we had no mutual property or debt when we got a divorce, to be able to do everything quickly and cheaply. Now he is threatening to take my to court because I am refusing to pay for repairs to the house we own together. Will a judge even listen since we both basically perjured ourselves in the first place?

You both committed perjury, a very serious crime, and may go to prison.

If either of you go to court, one of several things may happen: (1) the judge may void your divorce decree for fraud, meaning you'd have to start over, (2) you may both be arrested and face criminal prosecution, and/or (3) a judge may refuse to help, saying you both have unclean hands.

Get a good criminal attorney and a good divorce attorney as you have a potential mess of your own making.
