Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
Was husband a grantor (i.e. maker) of the trust as well as you?
Was the court made aware of the shares, it just failed to address and divide them?
Is the basic underlying issue that the shares were never divided, you overlooked this, ex then took them out of the trust, and now he has them in his name solely with loans against them?
Ok, then in a situation like this, you are going to have to get in touch with a divorce law attorney, (hopefully the same one who helped with the divorce if you had one) and then file a motion to reopen the divorce case to address the issue of the stocks that were not divided as being marital assets that were overlooked. The judge can then essentially look back in time to see what the shares were worth at the time of the divorce and amend the judgment to award you half the value of them and order ex to pay you that amount.
I saw your follow up posts but there simply is no other way to get that money without going back to court. This is a divorce property settlement issue and that can only be resolved by the judge who presided over the divorce action and signed off on any final settlement agreement.
So unfortunately, going back to court is your only recourse..
