If there was an asset subject to distribution that wasn't addressed at all, but you knew about it, I'm afraid it's probably too late to go after it 12 years later. If it's a substantial enough asset to want to be certain, you should talk to an attorney in your area, who can review all of the unique facts of your situation.
