Paul Nixon, of Harris County, Texas, is wanted by authorities for divorcing his wife without her knowledge or consent. Authorities say Nixon, 51, allegedly carried out the divorce using forged documents behind her back and is wanted for aggravated perjury and has a no-bond warrant out for his arrest.
Nixon’s wife told investigators in May that Nixon “filed for divorce and completed the entire proceedings without her knowledge or consent and that the court had already completed all hearings and filed the final divorce decree.”
Constable Mark Herman told the New York Post Nixon’s wife “was very surprised”. He said, “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.”
The constable said Nixon’s wife “started finding things showing that he was spending money on jewelry, so she confronted him and he told her that they were actually divorced.” Nixon and his wife were allegedly only married for a “couple of years” before he decided to end it without her knowledge.
Of course, the divorce decree has been since vacated because it was filed fraudulently, officials confirmed. Nixon and his wife “are still legally married.”
