A Texas man is being sought by police after “fraudulently” finalizing his divorce without his wife’s knowledge, authorities said.
Investigators found that Paul Nixon had submitted forged documents and false information to a district court in Houston.
“The waiver of service also included the forged signature of a notary public,” Harris County Constable, Mark Herman wrote in a Facebook post last week.
The divorce has been set aside due to the fraudulent filing, according to authorities.
The constable’s office launched an investigation after Nixon’s wife informed officials that he had “divorced” her without her knowing.
Herman could not be immediately reached for comment Sunday, but he earlier told TV station KPRC that a search for Nixon, wanted for aggravated perjury, is ongoing.
“We have teams out looking for him right now, I can tell you,” he told the station. “And we have an idea where he’s at. So hopefully, he’ll turn himself in. If not, we’ll catch him. Just a matter of time.”
