Condition for release of settlement money: Wife to close all court cases filed by her in native country.
Wife went to native country and found no cases were filed by her and no open cases. Only police report filed by her was withdrawn. However, there is a criminal case pending against him filed by the State, based on the police report and further investigations. Wife has no power to close this case as it is state case - not filed by her.
Attorneys then released the settlement money to her that was held in trust fund.
Ex-Husband sued to have money returned because "cases have to be closed" condition was not fulfilled therefore money should not be released..
1. Can the money be ordered to be returned to ex-husband ?
