    Unfortunately there is nothing that can be done. tie Court system is broken. There are too many cases for to few Judges. when you spouse comes to this same realization you will have a settlement. Until that time your case may linger in court

    Sounds like she is in violation of the agreement. Contact an Erie County family law attorney for a consult, and to file papers in Family Court.

    If you can prove to the courts that either you, your attorney, or a private investigator can not locate your spouse, then you can proceed with a divorce by publication. This process is tricky, so consult with a matrimonial attorney asap

    I assume you are talking about social security benefits. As long as you were married for more than 10 years you would be entitled to collect under your ex husband's benefits if that amount would be higher than the amount you would be able to obtain on your own. If you are talking about his pension or retirement benefits, it depends on the language in your settlement agreement.
