HI - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
If the name is ***** ***** the document, then it would not be a valid and legally enforceable document. That said, the forgery could/would go undetected until/unless your husband were to raise the issue and claim that the document doesn't bear his signature, etc.
Thus, in this situation, the divorce would be VOIDABLE......depending on whether or not your husband ever disputes the signature on the document.
I'm sorry, but I can't accept a phone call at the moment because I'm traveling.....but I'm happy to continue with you here.
That depends on whether or not the judgment for divorce was signed off and filed with the court or not.....if it was signed off by the judge and the court entered it in the records, then you wouldn't be entitled since there's no way to undo that at this point.
Since he's no longer alive to contest, he can't......and you likely don't want to admit to forging a legal instrument as that could cause you some serious legal issues.
