Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
If you and your wife signed this agreement, it would be held binding UNLESS you prove that there was fraud and failure to fully disclose. Thus, in order to void the settlement agreement
, which is treated as a regular contract
until it is signed off on and entered into the court as a court order, you have to prove that it was void by fraud and improper disclosures. Absent proving such fraud, the fact you signed the agreement can be held against you to force you to remain bound by that contractual agreement as there is no "buyer's remorse" (so to speak) law that allows you to just rescind the agreement.
If your attorney is not pursuing discovery as you requested and is not fighting for you, then you need to instruct him to do so and if he refuses, you need to consider going to another attorney and terminating this one.
