My husbands ex wife committed several counts of perjury through notarized statements to the family court judge during the 2015-2016 divorce, custody and ED case in Cumberland County, North Carolina. These statements were not subject to cross examination or rebuttal. She violated court orders and even committed 2 counts of forgery by signing his name to motor vehicle titles while in a no liquidation order. Is there a way to present this to a prosecutor? We feel this not being presented or addressed in the custody hearing impacted the judge's decision.
Take it to the local law enforcement agency and show a detective. Forget about the perjury stuff . . . it will distract from about the only case that there is (the forgery). Best of luck!

He can take the issue of forgery to the magistrate. They will probably forward him to a detective, and the detective will decide whether or not to pursue charges based on the evidence. As for violating the order, your husband can file a motion asking that she be held in contempt. As for the allegation of perjury, it is extremely rare that someone is charged criminally or punished directly for perjury. That being said, lying in court is still a terrible idea. You lose credibility with the judge. If it can be proved that she's committed perjury, she's going to have an extremely difficult time convincing the judge of her side of the story.
