Forging estranged wife's signatures to withdraw money


My husband- a serving army officer and residing in a different state, and I are separated since Sept 2014 and our divorce and DV cases are subjudice. Now my husband has forged my signatures to foreclose my insurance policy and has taken the payment. 1. Should I first lodge an FIR and then approach the court or should I directly file a forgery case U/S 468? Any other sections that should be included? 2. Will the onus of proving that the signature is not mine lie on me? 3. What is the legal mechanism for proving whose signature it is?

You can lodge a complaint and get an FIR registered on the basis of the same, and later proceed with forgery case. It's a cognizable offence so arrest can be done based on the FIR.
You can without any delay get a complain lodged.
