Affirmed.
(Court opinion corrected 12/14/12.) Defendant husband filed pro se motion to reconsider his previous motion to vacate prove-up, arguing that marital settlement agreement (MSA) was unconscionable and that he signed it only because his first attorney pressured him to do so and because stress of dissolution made him feel he had no choice but to sign it. Defendant provided no evidence to substantiate his claims, as no transcript or bystander's report filed. No evidence that Defendant was coerced or treated unfairly in negotiations process or MSA. (LAMPKIN and HALL, concurring.)
