Under the law, does my ex-wife deserve to get half of our properties and money? The divorce papers was signed 4 years ago and I never thought of the consequences of not fighting for the right to not give her anything even though she cheated on me, and abandoned me and our kids to be with the other man. Can I still do anything to change the division of our property?

In cases involving judgment on the division of property in a marital dissolution proceeding where one party wishes to have any modification made, their remedy is a timely set-aside motion within 6 months after the judgment is made, as per CCP § 473(b). But if the 6-month time bar expires, they may find an equitable relief through Fam.C. § 2120 et seq which sets forth the strict grounds for a set aside motion, and time limits applicable (Fam. C. § 2122).

For modifications involving property division in a divorce, work with an experienced divorce lawyer for more information and proper guidance.
