    Depends on the laws of the place where you live. When in doubt talk to a lawyer.

    An interesting question.  If a divorce settlement has been reached then it has not been considered by the courts.  If the backpay was for the period in which you WERE married I would consider myself honour bound to split it without any other intervention.  If it applied to the time after the separation I would not.
