Getting to your question. To sign another person's name is ***** ***** criminal offense and fraud.
In Texas the crime of forgery includes making, altering or using any falsified written item with the intent to defraud another. In your circumstance it is most likely a felony crime, but can also be tried as a misdemeanor.
You need to contact your local police station and/or the District Attorney's office to lodge a complaint that can be brought to Criminal Court.
It is also a civil crime, where damage is done to your reputation- defamation, identity theft and any other pecuniary loss.
You would need to contact a civil attorney in your County to pursue a civil action.
