    Answered . You are entitled to a percentage of the marital value of his pension. Sometimes you will be entitled to more than 50% in the event you earn less money than him and were dependent on him throughout the marriage. In such case, you may also be entitled to alimony. You should definitely seek qualified legal counsel in your area to represent your interests in this matter.
