    This depends upon what jurisdiction you are in and whether you are still within the statue of limitations to file. It would seem that liability is not in question and it is best if you speak to your lawyer to find out whether you are still within the time limit prescribed by law. It is possible that you might be able to get the statute extended due to certain circumstances, if necessary, e.g. spousal abuse issues. However, I would speak to your attorney as soon as possible.
