A: Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, it is unclear as to what type of settlement you are referring too. In the event that you were named in the lawsuit, you may be entitled to some of the settlement. However, if you are not a party to the litigation, you may not have a claim to any of the settlement. Based on your circumstances, it would be best to contact an experienced family law attorney to address your specific concerns.

A: It is impossible to determine an answer to your question as there are facts missing. What type of settlement? Why would you be owed something? What Court and the background on this matter. I am sorry, but I do not have enough facts to answer this
