Looking for guidance on whether a SAR should be filed when ex-wife claims husband forged her name to a business loan agreement while they were still married. She filed police report and the police forwarded it to the DA. First, should a SAR be filed on a situation like this in general and what does the fact that the case has already been forwarded to the DA do in regards to the filing requirement.

Why would it matter if they are/were married?

LE involvement does not change the requirements.

The only difference on the actual SAR form itself would be that due to the fact that LE has been contacted, you would need to fill in the LE Contact Information, items 92, 93, 94 & 95 if you make the decision to file; but agreed with Ed that it doesn't change the requirements.

Commercial loan fraud.

Filing responsibilities are unaffected by whether the subject has been accused, indicted, arrested, or convicted.

Question pertaining to them being married was only because she was part owner of the company when they were married. With divorce situations its always he said/she said.

It is referred to as a Suspicious Activity Report not a Guilty Activity Report.

I would treat this as if a CEO forged the signature of a former COO (just as an example).

I would just follow the dollar amounts for filing.
