If you have been charged with the crime of Perjury, you need to get an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately. A child can be convicted of perjury for swearing under oath that something is true when he or she did not know whether it was true or false. If someone swears falsely in a court proceeding involving family law matters, they are committing federal crimes including identity theft and financial document fraud. The state laws on perjury are very similar to the federal laws on lying under oath in relation to divorce cases. You will also want an experienced immigration lawyer if your citizenship status has been questioned by the government because of the charge against you for perjury.
What happens if I am found guilty?
The sentence for this crime varies greatly depending upon what type of charges were filed against you and how many other charges arise from your conviction on one or more counts of witness tampering, obstruction or retaliation while being interviewed by law enforcement agents seeking information about illegal behavior committed by others involved in your case which led to their arrest. If any children were caught up into these types of grand jury investigations then they may also face felony convictions along with their parents who told them what happened during these interviews without telling them that they could keep nothing secret at all from law enforcement investigators simply because there was no right way to do so according to American Family Law Lawyers’ clientele experience representing clients accused both people directly involved in crimes as well as victim witnesses facing cross examination testimony regarding whatever lies came out during grand jury proceedings
