The terms forgery and forged are used within these pages for clarity only, as these terms are most easily understood.
Forgery is a legal term and is covered by federal and various state criminal statutes. A person commits the crime of forgery in the first degree if, with intent to defraud, he falsely makes, completes, or alters a written instrument.
Wills, codicils, deeds, contracts, assignments, checks, drafts, notes, or other commercial instruments, as well as public records and official documents containing forged signatures, are examples of some instruments that are governed by various federal and state criminal statutes.
A forensic document examiner forms conclusions and states an opinion as to if a document/signature is genuine or not.
It is up to the trier of facts (the judge or jury) to decide if a document/signature is forged or not.
Please seek legal advice from an attorney or law firm who can offer guidance and representation in a practice area that fits your unique need or problem.
