I have been recently divorced, and in the divorce decree it states that I shall split any workers comp. settlements at at certain %. I recently got a check for blank $ for lawyers fees sub. 7 it " final payment for subd. 7 fees". Seeing how it says payment, I would think that it is not considered a settlement. I asked my work comp attorney he advised me I ask a family lawyer that is my question.

Hello. I agree that you should confer with a family law attorney as to this matter. You are welcome to contact me. The attorney assisting you will want to review the exact wording of the divorce decree in light of the present issue.

You must have your court order reviewed by an experienced attorney. There is no real way to respond without understanding more about the decree and the payment.
