The wife thing was to give an example of how the other party can manufacture any lie, and it has the same weight as your 'truth.' I'm in a battle right now with people that are grasping at straws, doing that same kind of thing (making stuff up). Thankfully, I had a feeling about these people and dcoumented EVERYTHING. What you see on TV is just that. TV. Take my advice on the attorney thing - see if he's willing to take the case on a contingency basis.
