Is there a statue of limitations in a divorce settlement?

Seattle, WA |

Does any state have a statute of limitations for a divorce action? It has been 20 years since my divorce settlement, and I now believe that all assets were not made known at the time of the divorce.

Is it too late to recover property or assets that were hidden?

Generally the statute of limitations on a divorce settlement is ten years. I have pasted a link below that details this.

Good luck, and remember that you've made it this far.
