Man Wanted for Trying to Divorce Wife Without Telling Her
Paul Nixon, 51, of Harris County, Texas, is wanted by cops for forging his wife’s name and the name of a notary on legal papers in a failed attempt to file for divorce without telling her. “We rarely see something like this,” said Constable Mark Herman. “In this particular case, the gentleman decided to go through a divorce but the only problem is, he left his wife out of the process. And that’s a violation of the law here in Texas.” Nixon is being sought by deputies on felony aggravated perjury charges after his wife contacted deputies on May 14th. “She was very surprised,” he told The Post. “She started finding things showing that he was spending money on jewelry, so she confronted him and he told her that they were actually divorced.”
The final divorce decree has since been vacated. Nixon, who faces up to 10 years if convicted and has a no-bond warrant out for his arrest, remained on the run as of Wednesday.
