Typically, if an individual wishes to contest a settlement, she should do so during the divorce. For individuals who cannot afford attorneys, legal aid services are often available. Further, the court can require the other spouse to pay for a spouse's attorney when the spouse cannot afford to do so herself. Unfortunately, an unfair settlement, by itself, isn't typically sufficient to open the matter back up.

That said, you'll want to take this to your attorney, as you have a great deal at stake. If you can show that there was fraud, duress, or undue influence, there may be a chance of having the settlement vacated.
