Equitable distribution incomplete


#1

My wife completed a list for ED as part of her civil lawsuit, I was then required to go through it and agree/disagree with values. She also indicated that she didn’t want anything except her car as she had no place to put it. So after 24 years of marriage I found her list to be imcomplete of a number of items she could have listed. Now since she doesn’t want anything this is in my favor but could she come back later and say she wants more money?

The property distribution is not final until it has been settled in a separation agreement (assuming the agreement includes a waiver of all future equitable distribution claims) or court order for a final distribution of the property. Until you have such a document, either party can change their proposed property distributions.
