I'm divorced and my PSA states that wife shall be entitled

Hi,I'm divorced and my PSA states that wife shall be entitled to ½ of all stock options, to be exercised as if wife so elects as long as permitted by plan. Husband has to facilitate such a request and wife has to provide funds. Wife shall be responsible for payment of any and all taxes due as a result of purchasing/selling her shares. My company is being purchased and my options are being cashed-out. That is, I'm receiving a check for the difference between strike price and current share price, for each option. Do I need to provide my exwife with ½ of the cash amount?

This is for a divorce lawyer from NH. After 20 yrs, I

This is for a divorce lawyer from NH. After 20 yrs, I divorced my husband on 4/16/06, we had 2 kids who were 15 and 16 at the time.My husband was a police officer at the time and threatened to hurt me if I took the police pension as part of the divorce settlement. While I started the divorce process with a NH based lawyer, I went to divorce court without legal representation because I feared my and my children's life.Its 11 years after the divorce and I wanted to know if I can reopen my divorce case and pursue the pension as I don't fear him anymore and feel that I was entitled to that pension. Is there a statue of limitation on divorce settlements in the state of NH? If not, what type of lawyer can help me?

However, because my name is ***** ***** it, I can not move on to another purchase and I was counting on part of my investment from marital home to use a down payment.

Thank you...ok...let me ask about the equity (my half-70K). I am the only person on the mortgage (i.e. it is my credit and mine alone on the line). What I want is to stay in the home until we sell or she could "buy me out" and get her own mortgage...but that is quite unlikely because that is why we could not get the mortgage with her on it as he credit is poor. Do you believe I have good shot at being able to do this? There is no abuse in the home.
