I had no capacity to sign during divorce trials.
While I was on the stand the Judge stated on record to the courtroom that I appeared to have no thought process in my head.
Then allowed me to sign 3 quit claim deeds & more that i never wld have.
I was told to follow everyone through a door.
I didnt know why or where i was or why the judge wasnt there anymore.
I was afraid without her and afraid that i would pass out
I signed whatever my attny put in front of me.
I remember seeing swirling smiling faces all nodding their heads.
I also remember thinking that I didn't want to die there.
Afterward back on the stand the judge asked if I was sure or if I needed more time to think about it.
Both being meaningless questions,
I answered yes then no.
I just needed to leave very badly.
I was lost for 9 hrs for a simple half hr drive home. Nothing looked familiar.
I was admitted into the hospital less than ten hrs later in shock receiving 2 pts of blood.
If the medical emergency caused you to actually lack capacity, then you could file a Request for Order to vacate and set aside the Judgment.
I don't know. I would need to know the context in which the judge stated what you believed he/she said. Talk to a family law attorney. If you actually got what the law allowed, then no need to do anything here.
