Paul Nixon, 51, from Harris County, Texas, is being sought by the police for falsifying his wife's name and legal notary's name to get a divorce that has now been withdrawn
One from Texas is wanted by the police after allegedly filing for divorce against his wife and completing it without her knowledge.
Paul Nixon, 51, is said to have forged his wife's signature and even forged the approval of a notary for the paperwork.
Nixon filed the paperwork on February 15, the day after Valentine's Day, with a judge who subsequently signed the divorce decree in April, which legally dissolved his marriage.
Three months later, in May, Nixon's wife discovered the secret divorce and called the police.
He is accused of aggravation after the authorities have discovered fraudulent divorce papers.
Nixon's wife said that her husband has filed for divorce and completed the entire procedure without her knowledge or consent, and that the court has already completed all the hearings and filed the final divorce decree
& # 39; We rarely see anything like that & # 39 ;, said agent Herman Harris The New York Post.
& # 39; In this specific case, the gentleman decided to go through a divorce, but the only problem is that he left his wife out of the process. And that is a violation of the law here in Texas.
& # 39; His wife was very surprised, & # 39; he said to The Post. & # 39; She started to find things that showed he was spending money on jewelry, so she confronted him and told her they were really divorced. & # 39;
The police have since submitted a motion to abandon the order and restore Nixon's marriage to his wife.
& # 39; They are still legally married, & # 39; said Herman. & # 39; The fraudulent divorce papers have been withdrawn. & # 39;
Nixon has since taken refuge after the authorities have announced that he is being sought in connection with the crime.
& # 39; We currently have teams of officers looking for him, & # 39; said Herman.
Nixon is now facing up to 10 years in prison if he is found and convicted. Regarding his marriage, no new divorce proceedings have been initiated.
