I would like some information on my situation. I was divorced after a lifetime marriage
of 30 years from my husband who makes in excess of 300,000.00 a year, also has substantial retirement funds, and so on. my attorney told me he wrote up a standard divorce
contract, but he had put a nonmodifiable spousal support
clause in which he did not point out to me. my ex-husband had faked an 85% loss in business income by cooking his books. that has been well-documented by a forensic accountant. the CPA my attorney had hired submitted a letter saying that he had reviewed all the financial records both personal and business and that Len indeed had a loss of 85% in income. Turned out the CPA never looked at any of the records but wrote the letter anyway. At any rate, i am presently disabled from a car accident one year ago. I live in Fargo ND. what are my options regarding revisiting the nonmodifiable clause, or do I have any options. when I confronted my divorce atty about it, he lied and said he told me about it. I said I would have been an idiot to sign off on that when I knew my ex was lying extensively. I have lost the only asset I received which was the family home. I lost it because I cannot work, and many medical bills, loss of income, and spending one year intensively in rehabilitation. what are your thoughts on this? I have been unable to come up with the funds to hire an atty, apparently need to go thru medical bankruptcy and so on. I am living way below poverty line because of this situation. I was a career homemaker to a large family, I gave up my successful career as a therapist to raise them and also to put my husband thru a doctorate, several specialty certifications, as establishing a sucessful career, travelled, and so on.
