Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi,I'm Zoey and I'll be assisting you. I'm reviewing your question now. Are you online at this time?
You can report the forgery as a crime to the police and tell them that you want your wife prosecuted. How long ago did this happen? Were you married to her at the time?
Thank you. Is the divorce still being litigated?
If this took place 10 years ago, the statute of limitations has run on both criminal and civil remedies. However, if you just found out and it is reasonable that you wouldn't have been able to learn this earlier within the statutory time, you might be able to get around a statute of limitation argument.
But if you bring this to the attention of the police, the second that they find out you're in divorce litigation, they will tell you that it's appropriate to bring this to the attention of the Family Court judge since it involves marital property.
Just checking in to see if you need more help or any clarification of my answer. If so, please reply here on this question thread.
