Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
Hello. Yes you do have recourse-- you will have to hire an attorney and challenge the divorce settlement agreement because you were mentally incompetent at the time he asked you to enter into the agreements. WIth your record of hospitalizations and medical treatments, that should not be hard to prove and the agreement can be set aside and something fairer to you can be negotiated. Do not give this man another thing until you speak with a lawyer in North Carolina (a florida lawyer will not be able to help you). THat lawyer will contact either him or his lawyer and tell him/his lawyer that you will be filing in court if they do not voluntarily come to some kind of an agreement.
