Is there a statue of limitations in a divorce settlement?

Asked almost 5 years ago - 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?

    Answered . 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.
