Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.To pursue both of these options, first of all you can file a 'motion for clarification' pertaining to the IRA. As those funds were split between the parties, regardless on whether or not it is a college fund or a personal account, you can ask the judge to clarify whether or not she owes you a share of the assets. That is the easiest and simplest solution. The second issue requires either an attempt to compromise where a second appraisal is held, at her expense, and a value for the property is re-evaluated. Then the value that is the average of the appraisals is used to evaluate the property. Or you can file a petition for contempt of court against the ex and claim that she is refusing to comply in bad faith. The first option is much cheaper, easier, and likelier to escape further litigation.Good luck.
