Forged quit claim deed GEORGIA

If a Quit Claim Deed was drawn up and recorded in 1996 and not revealed to me until 2003 can I still do something? I have had the document examined and the signature (person since deceased) has been documented as a forgery by forensic handwriting expert.
I have been working on this problem solved since I found out and been "bounced" back and forth by the two states involved. No one wants to do anything. Now, NC (land located there) states if I can get civil action against the notary and person suspected of the forgery, and they are found guilty, they will prosecute. DeKalb County can't find the "incident report" I gave the detective the information in 2004.
The person involved deliberately waited 7 years to tell me thinking the statute of limitations had expired.
Does anyone know if Georgia goes by "point of discovery" which would have been Nov-Dec 2003?

Does anyone know?
Any help would be appreciated. This whole ordeal is driving me crazy as there seems there should be something I can do besides be given the run around.

I haven't been reading Georgia real estate law details since '86, but generally the statute of limitations does NOT begin to run until NOTIFICATION or REGISTRATION of the deed occurs. Take it to a lawyer and fight it. You need to speak to a lawyer anyway to sue them. Might as well get started.

If the property is in NC then you will have to deal with them, unfortunately.
Do you know if an owner's title insurance policy was purchased on the property? If so, you should be able to go to that company that issued it.
