My name is ***** ***** I shall do my best to help you

Is this part of a matrimonial settlement?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No, it was agreed in 2001 that my parents would be allowed to live in the house until their passing, my father died 2 yrs ago leaving just my mother. We have not lived in the house since 2001, I have paid every payment since purchase from my personal account, we were divorced early this year and she lives in Belgium and has now asked for the house to be sold against our initial agreement. This has not been part of our divorce settlement.

Has there actually been a final divorce settlement?
