What to do if during my divorce my ex lied through the entire proceeding?

When I proved it in court the family court judge said that’s a criminal matter not a family matter and that if I wanted anything done about it I would have to file with criminal court. Can you help me out and let me know what forms I need to file?

I suggest that you contact an investigator with your local district attorney's office in the county and state where the dissolution proceeding is venued and then make a complaint with the investigator as to what happened. From there, you need to see what the district attorney's office plans on doing about things.
