equalizer payment

I signed divorce papers under duress in 2002. In 11/07, my

ex husband owes me the sum of $15,000 as an equalizer payment, possibly out of the sale of the house I signed over to him. Because of the wording of the item it looks like he can get out of it. I have been advised to put a lien on the house or to get an Abstract of Judgement. Both the Civil court and Family Law court here refuse to do it.

I feel I must again pay an attorney to find out I have lost more money. $18,000 is owed into my retirement so I really do need this money. Any advice?
