    Hi,
    I am a divorcee of a prosperous CFO & Business Manager. I am inquiring as to how to find the offshore accounts and other money factors owing to me, as my Ex husband divorced me 5 years ago and is still living a very affluent life after declaring he was bankrupt.
    We were divorced in June 2012 and he married his mistress of 6 years with two teenage young children at the time. He proved I was insane and incapable of knowing the truth, and had all the documents and bank accounts sealed up before approaching me about the divorce. However we were married over 31 years with two adult children and I spent my lifetime helping him to develop his passion, while dismissing my own career.
    I was given 1.2 million dollars to live on out of 30 million dollars he had acknowledged a year before the divorce that we would have for our lifetime to live on.
    I had a lawyer from Raleigh Lee Rosen & Associates look into it for me, but they failed to find anything and I was told to look no further.
    After 5 years I am still not satisfied that the amount administered to me at that time, is irrelevant to the lavish lifestyle he leads today and I am still struggling to make my money work for me, meaning I live well below the standards of what I had but he remains to live it up.
    I would like to know if I am entitled to any of his superannuation or Retirement funds as none of that was mentioned being that he was bankrupt.
    I hope you can give me some information as to what I can do to find out how to progress with this.

    Yours sincerely,

    Wendy O’Connor
