The divorce was granted however my lawyer advised me to collect my divorce decree later.. so now we have to enter into another part which he refers to as division of asset..please advise as I feel a bit lost..the divorce settlement stated that my husband and I should equally share our joint estate but it doesn't detail those joint estate.. Only after the divorce has been settled, My lawyer is saying we should start discussing the division of assets.. my husband abused me long enough, I suffered a lot of things and I have a proof for most things but my lawyer doesn't want me to fight him..please advise somebody
