Good Morning, Barry is right, you defintely need legal advice. If you need a referral to a real estate attorney, please contact me for one. Otherwise, I would refer back to your divorce attorney since they are already familiar with your case and simple real estate matters, because they often come up in divorce, should not be too far outside the scope of your attorneys capability.
The award sounds like enough for a down payment on a small place to call your own. If manage to get your hands on it and decide to look for a home, I can set you up with an MLS Alert service that will email you immediately when homes meeting your criteria become available. There is no additonal costs that I pay for the service and no cost or obligation to you. Please contact me directly if you would like that set up.
Good luck starting the next chapter of your life.
