In 2002 with no warning or genuine marital problems, my wife was caught cheating with her boss by his wife and she immediately moved with my child to her boss's new residence. She then filed for divorce after 14 years of marriage. we had minimal assets, zero home equity and we both signed a simple statement waiving each other's pension benefits that we both agreed to. The divorce has been final for almost 12 years and her friends tell me her gold digging since divorce has been a miserable failure and now plans to come after my very modest pension of $1000 a month. Can she do it 12 years later, especially with the simple notarized form waiving the rights to each others pension?No qdro was prepared by either of us since we waived each others benefits. She essentially rushed the process. Requested a name change back to her maiden name, but her friends also mention she started using my last name again for unknown reason.
