Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Did you sign agreeing to these unfair terms she proposed?

Was the divorce filed?

Have you considered getting an attorney involved on your behalf yet?

Thank you for your response.

Your only option here to fight this and get this unfair agreement thrown out of the court is to now play hardball with her. This means going to court and filing a motion to vacate settlement agreement and argue that she used coercion, fraud and threats to force you to sign the agreement and did not give you full disclosure.

Unfortunately, though this means you actually have to go to court and really it means that based on everything that you wrote above and the way she has been able to force you to do things, you must get an attorney involved so they can convince the court that you were a victim of fraud by her to get you to agree to this and this can be a tough case that is going to take some legal arguments and some case research to get the court convinced to undo what this agreement does.

If you want to get out of this and get something fair and get your full amount, then this is legally what you have to do to protect your rights.
