    In most states, the answer is no. Property is valued at the date of divorce and whatever happens after that is not grounds to change what the agreement was when the divorce was finalized.

    If you don't qualify for a public defender, you can ask the court to appoint a lawyer for you at county expense, though you may have to reimburse the county after the case is concluded.

    There's no firm rule on what you have to give her or what she has to give you. You should try to arrive at an agreement with her regarding dividing your estate. Some courts will order you to mediation, but if it can't be resolved then the judge will decide at trial.

    You should definitely respond and provide the Reno County court with a copy of your judgment. Based on what you're saying the judgment in Illinois is perfectly valid but if you don't respond at all, Reno County could enter orders that would have negative consequences for you.
