Your name being on the check and it being cashed without your consent could constitute fraud or conversion. You could file a civil action to recover your share of the money.

Research the particular law (statute) to find a recent case in which an appellate court in your jurisdiction ruled that the law remains valid and enforceable. Focus most closely on cases within the last 20 years or so. I would use LEXIS or WESTLAW.
