Thank you for your question
My name is ***** ***** I am sorry for your loss
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
Do you know if there was in fact a Financial Order which was sealed by the court dealing with this?
When was that done?
Have you contacted the court to check if the Order was actually sealed
Have you asked the Court if the Order was made?
Do you have a copy of the Decree Absolute?
May I just check which part of the Uk you are in?
Do you have anything at all with the Court number on?
Which part of the Uk are you in?
Does that have a number in the top right hand corner?
Yes you did say
This troubles me. Do you mean that it is simply a list of who gets what?
What does it say at the top/start?
I am concerned about whether or not this was in fact a binding agreement
If it was turned into a Court Order then you can sue his ex for the funds as they belong to the estate of your late husband.
My major concern is that this was NOT turned into a Court Order.
I suspect this as the wording tells me that a solicitor was not involved at that stage.
If it was not turned into a Court Order then you will struggle to recover any monies as she was entitled to the funds and you cannot bring a posthumous claim on his behalf
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
