hey hardtime, i'm not sure if she can take half your money or not? my guess is, it depends on your state laws regardin community property and if your settlement is in the compensarory catigory?
if its strickly a workman's comp settlement it could very well be all compensation? my case was a third party lawsuit and my award of 8 million dollars was placed as not compensatory but as punitive damages making none of it hers by any means i'd check with a good lawyer!
