Hello,
My question is what time after a divorce are you allowed to question sales of a car and a boat at double the price that was given to us at time of divorce, with no extra value done to the property involved?

Thank you.

Also ... How long have you been divorced if you have?
Have you done a property settlement?
What is the $ difference between value given & sold price?

No specific time limit, BUT if your property settlement is finalised & formal (as in consent orders or a BFA) Then to have any chance of success by bringing it back to court, you the applicant will need to have some pretty strong evidence of deliberate fraud or at least deliberate suppression of evidence at the time...

Do you have a formal final property settlement?
How were the items valued at the time? Just a figure submitted or were they properly valued?
Why did you not question the value at the time?

I question the values my lawyer said if I wanted a independent value on these items I had to pay and they would be the same people as Hobart really don't have many options for the boats and the car was the lowest red book value .
Once again I question my lawyer saying it was very cheap. Because he showed evidence of a for sale of the car at that price at the time of the settlement. They accepted it.

1) Have you confirmed 100% that is what they have been sold for or just going by what someone has said they have sold for?

2) As the figures were accepted at the time of settlement & there is some evidence (red book & sales figures) to back up the value at the time, then it's going to be very difficult to prove fraud, & that's pretty much the only way you can have the orders set aside.... Legal fees would likley eat up any gain even if you were successful.

Thank you for your help. I appreciate it. I now for a fact that he sold the property at those prices, he advertised them at those prices and I spoke to the people he sold them too.
Thank you again for your time.
