Husband (soon to be EX) stole, forged & cashed state tax refund check?!…?
Asked by: megan
I am in NC, legally & physically separated from my husband. We filed joint, and in the separation agreement he signed – he agreed the check would be mine completely because of financial arrangement (not to mention I made the money)! So he intercepted the check, forged my name & cashed it. The police here won’t press charges because it is ‘domestic’ and we are legally married. Check was made out to both names, we do NOT have any joint accts. Evidently, it’s not a crime if you commit against your wife!! How do I go about taking this to small claims? He now resides in another county – do I have to file there? Should I go after the bank that allowed it? They say their policy is to have both parties present to sign. Any guidance or advice here greatly appreciated! (He SAYS he will re-pay which I know is bs, and I’m not waiting on this)
