Do Not Sign the Papers! Unless you had a legal separation 18 years ago, you are still legally married, and any property or asset, including your spouse’s retirement account, is a marital asset, to which you would be entitled to a share. Any inheritance he received, if kept in his name only, is separate property, not marital.
Consult an experienced matrimonial lawyer in your jurisdiction and seek his advice .,
