Michael David Siegel's answer It is very hard to accomplish what your husband's ex-lawyer wants to do. Obviously, the payment of this debt should be required in the divorce. That is the place to fight it first. It would take years to bring a judgment lien from FL, foreclose it, prove that there is no exemption, etc. I would not do anything to the house, unless your ex would convey it to you outright.
Michael David Siegel's answer Only the DA can prosecute anything. You can make a criminal complaint for the bounced checks, but it is very unlikely to be acted upon. You can sue in Supreme Court for damages, but that is really it.
Michael David Siegel's answer You are out of luck because you accepted $600 for the time you worked and did not work after that time. Oral contracts are enforceable, and texts can substantiate a contract, but from what you posted you retained no interest in your Code. There is nothing in your post that substantiates that you have any claim left. Your post in contrast substantiates a settlement of $600.
