There may be some attorneys who will take a look at your case in a consultation without charge, however most attorneys do charge some fee for a consultation. You may want to consider contacting the State Bar to see if they can refer you to an attorney in your area that does free consultations, or may consider taking a domestic case pro bono.
If your separation agreement contains a waiver of alimony, the same goes for the 401(k), if your separation agreement contains a waiver of Equitable Distribution claims you cannot pursue what would have been your share of the account.
