My wife told me she wasn’t happy anymore and wanted a divorce back in September (however she didn’t actually leave till April, but she did move all her stuff out months prior). She filed as married filing “jointly” and forged my signature. I had no idea she had done this. I filed my taxes as married filing “separate” and I was due a refund. She filed for all the kids’ credits and received a hefty refund. My return is yet to be determined. I intend to turn her in to the IRS for fraud, forgery or whatever. She KNEW she was getting a divorce, yet hurriedly did the tax returns and claimed our 2 children and got tax credits AND our refund (with the forgery of my signature).
If I can prove that she fradulently filed our income taxes…and IF I can prove adultry prior to her moving out, could this void any post separation support and/or alimony??
