My husband separated from his ex back in 2004. He created a Domestic Contract for division of assets, which is legal here in Canada. While the divorce was still pending his ex filed a lawsuit against a company in 2006 for an injury claim. The case for the claim continued for 3 years and was just settled within the last few weeks. Since it appears to have been settled out of court we have no idea how much it was settled for but so far the ex has bought a truck, a wii, and several other things.
My husband and I have custody of their daughter due to abuse by the ex's boyfriend. We were just starting to file for child support when this court case came back. I have two questions based on the information above. 1) Can child support include the settlement info somehow? The mother has quit her job and will now try to claim she has no income. And 2) Can my husband re-file division of assets for marital property and include his ex's settlement, since they were still married when the case was filed?
