Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Good evening! I can help you out with your legal question tonight.
Yes, you must ask for a copy of the executed application first from the entity that loaned the money. When you get that, you will need to review it to see if there was a signature for you.
You will then contest that signature and can actually sue your ex husband for fraud for signing your name.
Now with all of that said, if he can show that you knew about the loan and supplied documentation as you suggested, then you will not be successful on a fraud suit.
In my opinion, since you provided your DL and knew about it, the court would likely find you were aware of this loan and that he had your permission.
That is what I was afraid of. Thank you for your help.
You are very welcome. Have a great night and good luck! Please leave me feedback so that I can continue to help others.
