My husband and I are having a rough patch. He has a future settlement coming from a malpractice suit within the next six months. I am currently the sole breadwinner. He has been intimating that he is going to claim the settlement for himself. I asked him to sign a legal form giving me a vested 50% interest in the money or I will leave and he will have no current income. He agreed to sign it.
What type of form do I need to write? Can I just clearly and concisely map out the terms of our agreement and get it notarized?

Quite honestly I can not imagine any attorney providing you with a "form" that you can use or a road map. Depending on how much the settlement is, you're being penny-wise and potentially pound-foolish by not having an attorney draft something up based on all the facts.
