Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.To answer directly, the former spouse's wife has no right to sue you for any claims frm the prior decree. There are many reasons for that, but one is the fact that the decree, once granted, became final. The second, and equally important claim is that the other party had no standing to contest the decree, if anyone needed to claim that the decree is somehow improper it would have been either you or your spouse. Once a formal property settlement takes place, it is final and binding, a new party cannot choose to sue over this settlement that took place 15 years back. So no, the wife has no basis to sue here.Good luck.
