This answer was rated:

Me and my wife have just discovered that someone has filed a divorce in my name and has acess to our personal information. We also have learned that he/sheis trying to steal all our assets through this false marriage filing. We are in need of help on stopping this false divorce filing before it is to late.
I am sorry to hear this.

Have you filed a police report yet?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
No, We haven't.
I feel that I have to suggest that you do so. At a minimum, it sounds like someone committed forgery, fraud, and probably other crimes by doing what you described.

My opinion is that one simple way to but an end to the case might be for you and your spouse to jointly file a motion to dismiss the case using the Motion Packet

But I would speak with a detective first, they might want to have you play along until they can catch someone red handed filing another forged document in your case. There may already be security camera footage from the Courthouse that will reveal who did this. So I believe the first step would be to contact law enforcement, but as the terms of use of this site state, that is not legal advice, but it is my honest opinion.
