Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to help if I can. Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question, conduct any necessary research, and type a response. Thank you.
Hello again. Thanks for your patience.
I won't sugar coat this because I'm sure you want an honest answer: It will be difficult to get the assets back. You'll likely need to prove to a judge that you were not competent when you signed over the assets, and that because you did not understand or appreciate what you were doing, your actions should have no legal effect. Depending on the facts, that may be a very tall order. On the other hand, if you can show that you were medicated, and that you were not in a right frame of mind, then it's possible to win the argument. You could frame the situation as though your ex was knowingly taking advantage of the fact that you were severely depressed and were being treated with medications that altered your ability to understand what you were doing.
Certainly, the fact that you gave him all of your assets which he would not have otherwise been entitled to indicates that something was not quite right. But again, this will be a difficult argument. My suggestion is that you obtain a new attorney to put this argument together and file something in court.
Does that answer your question? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied.
