You may need to consult with a personal injury attorney of your own as you may have the right to assert a lien against her settlement. If she is not cooperating with disclosures, you can contact the court facilitator and get his/her attention to the problem. Good luck.
If your wife is represented by an attorney, your attorney (or yourself only if you are not represented by an attorney) should contact her attorney to obtain the required information. If your wife has not complied with the mandatory disclosure obligations under C.R.C.P. Rule 16.2 (which disclosures should include the information you seek), you may be able to ask the court for an order compelling the disclosures or the Family Court facilitator on your case for assistance. Neither the judge nor the facilitator can give you legal advice, however.
It is important to have full disclosure of financial information before a divorce is finalized. If you do not have an attorney, you should get one. If you cannot afford an attorney, contact the Colorado Bar association and ask about the Do-It-Yourself Divorce clinics offered around the metro area (for free), or Metro Volunteer Lawyers to see if you qualify for a free or low-cost attorney.
