Husband has powerful political lawyer -- need to find someone knowledgeable of attorney's style and agressiveness.
Don't mistake style for knowledge of the facts and law. I am assuming this is a divorce. Find an experienced divorce attorney capable of handling the case. The likelihood of a successful outcome is determined by the facts. Also, measure your success by accomplishing your reasonable objectives rather than "winning" the case. In divorce cases rarely does one side win or lose.
Good luck.See question

Where does your son live now? Massachusetts recognizes financial exploitation of an elder as abuse which carries both civil and criminal consequences where the facts support the claim. There is no guaranty that you can get your money back, but if he has assets to attach that would be the best start.
I would call the Attorney General's office in Boston. I believe they have helpful information they can send to you. I would meet with an attorney as soon as possible.
My brother-in-law was named trustee of my father-in-law's trust. Rather than dispensing the trust, he and his wife raided the estate to the tune of $60,000. He then passed away, leaving my sister-in-law in the home and the second trustee was appoi...

The answer to your question depends on specific facts. Avvo is a public forum. Do not post specific facts on any public forum. This is something you should speak with an attorney about immediately.
In the meantime, tell your attorney to cancel the check immediately.
