yes from what we have gathered the insurance company advised us that to claim was filed in 2012 they provided us the name of the person who filed the claim which came to be my husband's ex girlfriend my husband moved out of their home in 2010 we got married in 2011 and the claims were filed in 2012 my husband and myself we're leaving at a different property and his address was no longer at that oldamage property, this occurred in the state of new mexico we have verification that he did not reside at that property and the insurance company gave us a copy of the check that we wish you to my husband and showed a signature that was not his

HelloThank youForgery is a crime. And I suggest that he can file a police report on the forgery and subsequently what appears to be theft of funds. I suggest he can file the police report and also talk to the District Attorney about filing a statement of charges for the crimes. She would then be served with a summons to appear in criminal court. While the insurance company holds an interest in trying to recoup the money, your husband is the "victim" here and he needs to have the charges brought.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
