Hello, I am happy to assist.
Sorry to hear about your situation. Yes, the notary is responsible, and you could file an ethical claim against their notary license. They may lose it for doing this. The bank may also have some liability if the notary was working for them at the time she did this as an agent of the bank.
If you file suit, I would include your ex wife, the notary, and the bank in the suit.
I hope this helps,
