A: When you file any documents with the court you have to sign a verification saying it is true and correct. If you are later found out to have knowingly lied to the Court you can be charged with committing purgery, which can carry jail time. You should speak with an attorney to make sure you are properly protected.

A: But you do have minor children, so you need to disclose that. Work with an attorney to ensure everything is properly handled, especially considering there are minor children involved.
