I am in Houston, Texas and yes I have a final copy of the divorce and its also register in court register, also I have the deed of Trust to Secure Assumption because my X refused to get the house refinance. It states in the divorce as said - Property to Wife - IT IS ORDERED AND DECREED that the wife, MAYAA DOE , is awarded the following as her sole and separate property, and the husband is divested of all right, title, interest, and claim in and to that property: In Column W-10 . All sums, whether matured or unmatured, accrued or unaccrued, vested or otherwise. Together with all increases thereof, the proceeds therefrom, and any other rights relating to any profit-sharing plan, retirement plan, Keogh plan, pension plan, employee stock option plan, (401(k) plan, employee savings plan, accrued unpaid bonuses, disability plan, or other benefits existing by reason of the wife's past, present, or future employment with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.

Lawyer: Law Educator, Esq., Attorney replied 2 years ago
Thank you for your reply.
Here is a sample of what an appeal reply brief looks like: http://www.keelingdownes.com/Brief-Kintron.pdf
Here is another: http://www.jonesdayappellate.com/files/CaseStudy/b95f3899-a3af-43cf-980e-c3d9294d30de/Presentation/CaseStudyFile/5c689869-33d5-4fe3-993e-c59b2b56e1f7/avcointerstateNAATSW.pdf
The formats are pretty much identical through all of the appeals courts, even though your brief may not be that long, the sections are the same and the way you make your arguments is the same. You list the issue, the rule, then provide analysis of the rule with your facts and then conclusion what you believe the court should do and why.
