I think you need to talk to a divorce lawyer in your area, because it sounds like there is quite a bit more to this story, and I have a very strong feeling that at least some of that is important.  You have too much at stake, possibly, to take chances here.  Places to find an attorney include the bar association's attorney referral service, listed in your phone book, and our website, http://attorneypages.com

If you sold the house 5 years ago, and the divorce was filed this year, I'd say he's very much out of luck, unless the sale was some sort of sweetheart deal and you're still living there.  If that's the case, you definitely need a lawyer.
