Thank you for your response AdamL1:
Based on the information you have provided you do have the following recourse actions to take against her:
1) Fraud and theft of your social security. It is unlawful to use someone else's social security to obtain a job or other benefit. You can report the crime to the police. You can also report the fraud to the Office of Inspector General. You can obtain more information here.
2) If she is charged with the crimes of fraud or theft and she will be prosecuted, you can then notify the New York State Bar for disciplinary investigation which may result in her disbarment from the practice of law.
3) You can also report the IRS as to the tax fraud she has committed by using your information.
4) You can also contact the employer to report that she used your social security to get employment as she has defrauded the employer by misrepresenting your social security as yours.
5) As to the cashed checks, since the account was joint she has access to the account. In your divorce you can seek more of the marital assets to compensate for the amount she took from these accounts.
Based on the information you have provided, this is why I see as your course of action.
