OK

So did the judge sign off on the decree and settlement agreement.If thats the case its final and you owe her nothing.The decree is the final orders from the divorce and sets out the property division and other issues . She would have to convince a judge to reopen it here and that is very unlikely.Absent fraud a court will not revisit a settlement and decree here under Texas family law.

I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.

THE JUDGE DID SIGN OFF ON THE DECREE AND SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT

She only has 30 days from the date of the hearing to object to the signing of the decree, ask the court to vacate, or reopen, the default judgment and request permission to contest the divorce terms.

If it hasn't been 30 days since final hearing maybe stall a bit an it will be too late here.
