If the divorce is finalized then I think that puts and end to any ED claims. That being said certain assets are still marital in nature. I think an example would be a house that is jointly titled. Retirement funds (401K) are out of play (I think) once a divorce is finalized and no ED claim has been filed. Talk to an attorney


Yes, if the divorce is finalized and you have not initiated litigation regarding those issues or signed a final agreement, you have waived those rights.
