Can I claim legal fees that I paid to make my ex spouse sell the home?

I had to hire a lawyer to force my ex to list the house for sale after our separation. Can I claim the legal costs on my tax return? If so, where?

And the funds are still held in trust from the sale of the home.  It sold in 2016 but the money has not yet been released.  Do I have to claim this as income in 2016 even though no money has been received yet?
