Hello there --
You should contact a new attorney who specializes in setting aside already completed divorce settlements and judgments based upon the grounds of mental incompetence of the parties to the agreement and hiding of assets by the former spouse. The court will hear your motion to reopen the matter so long as your psychiatrist will testify that you were not competent to review the terms of the agreement and make a valid judgment regarding whether or not to agree to the terms as they were written or to seek changes to the documents.
In addition to setting aside the settlement agreement -- a new attorney can also review everything for you to determine whether or not you might have a lawsuit against your former attorney who seemed to be incompetent and who let you sign the settlement agreement paperwork without properly reviewing all assets held by your ex husand that he (the lawyer) was aware of at the time you were being pushed to sign the agreement by your then attorney. To find another local attorney you should contact the local county bar association in your county and ask for referrals to several attorneys in your area who can handle the matter.
I hope that helps. Please let me know if you have more questions. If not, can you please press a positive rating in the ratings section above this box (the middle or the fourth or the fifth star) so I will be paid for my time assisting you tonight. THANK YOU
