According to my divorce papers my ex husband (i love saying that) owes me $6,400. He currently has it sitting in his savings account in the bank. He only wants to give me $5,500. He says he doesnt owe me anymore than that even though it says it right there in the divorce papers that he does. I have tried to get my lawyer to talk to his lawyer and I havent gotten a reply. He wasnt suppose to cash the check he got but he did it anyways, he was suppose to talk to his lawyer about what im suppose to get and he hasnt yet. I cant wait forever. My mom is telling me to just take the $5500 now and he will just owe me the rest after he talks to his lawyer. I'm afraid if i take the less amount of money now that he wont give me the rest later, even if he talks to his lawyer. My mom thinks he wont give me anything at all. He has the money saved, he wont touch it. He knows better than to steal from me. What should i do? take the less amount and wait for the rest of it or just try to be patient for a little bit longer and get the full amount all at once?
