A: This is one of the many problems of not having a lawyer handle your divorce. What do you do when problems arise? You should consider finding yourself a good lawyer. If you husband sold true marital property, your attorney may be able to get you a settlement to get the value of half of the value of the property your husband sold. If not, your attorney may ask the court to award you half of the value at trial.
