Thank you for your response.
The statute of limitations
has passed I am afraid now for the malicious prosecution case. You are going to be limited now to filing motions for sanctions and ask for default for the divorce based on her fraudulent conduct. You can also ask for the court to award you monetary penalties for her conduct on top of the default order for divorce and community property distribution.
You can try to file criminal charges, but the statute of limitations for felony charges punishable by less than 8 years in prison (which these are) is only 3 years from date of offense.
I am afraid that at this point in your action, because you did not pursue the malicious prosecution and if you are outside of the criminal statutes of limitations, this really might be your only legal avenue left to pursue.
