Can I sue my ex-spouse for lying under oath (perjury) re: abuse in our child custody trial?

Q: The statements are completely false and were intentional, can be proven, and has caused damage in our case.. My son has been taken from me temporarily and we are in a heated trial that is bankrupting me!.. if so, is there a statute of limitation.. I was told that this is not defamation or slander but perjury..

A: First, you should concentrate on winning the custody trial by using the evidence you've obtained. There are generally civil tort claims you can pursue, including abuse of process. You are best advised to consult a civil litigation lawyer on such a claim.  -- David Bliven, Westchester Family Law attorney (
