This involves distribution of "equity" in the marital home at the time the home prices were inflated. It caused me to ad on debt in a refinance and take on a higher interest rate. The mortgage also doubled. The property is now under water and the other party has been unduly enriched at my expense. He is now seeking to collect more from my pension. I would like consideration for the sum he has already received that has placed a financial burden on me. At least 50% of it should be returned or credited.
It will be a final order if I don't respond in two days. My ex filed a motion to have his rights enforced by my pension company to be paid because I am currently in payment status. He is not in payment status. I have been in payment status since July 2011. I'm sure he is going to try to get back payments.
Also, my retirement was only temporary to deal with my health issues. I expect to be back to work within a year.
Do you think it would also help if I mention the fact that I only retired temporarily for a health condition that needed to be address, which by the way existed before the marriage and that my ex was fully aware of it?
