J. Richard Kulerski Esq.'s answer
A lawyer must meet with you to learn all of your facts in order to be able to give you a proper answer. I think you are talking about his state farm pension, and your entitlement could depend on the language in your judgment, or perhaps on possible fraud in his disclosure. You have an uphill battle.
