If he transferred his interest in the property to her and didn't reserve the right to collect any portion of the proceeds from the sale of the house, he's probably got no legal standing to seek any portion of that money.


Also, it is possible that the divorce decree ordered him to deed his ownership interest in the property to her.


If he was supposed to receive funds from the sale and didn't he could see to recoup that amount.
