Definitely it's forgery. How much money is this and is it worth suing for it. I'm hoping this is related to a divorce!
Probably should contact your divorce lawyer.

This answer posted on Avvo is for informational and educational purposes only. There is no attorney-client relationship created or formed and you should not rely on this as legal advice. The suggestion is made that if you wish to protect your rights, you consult with an attorney immediately.
Yes you can. And more importantly, the police can do a lot of your investigation for you if you just call them!!
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced criminal defense attorney to be fully aware of your rights.
Forgery of Signature as you describe is criminal conduct. Report immediately to the police now that you have found out.
A civil action can be started, and the police investigation can be quite helpful here.
