My ex husband never was represented by an attorney,He never showed at any of the divorce proceedings.In my divorce decree my attorney put that I am Forever barred from receiving my ex husbands pension.Is there something I can do to legally over rule that?
Talk to an attorney at once. The key is when this happened and what the divorce decree says. If there was a pension that was ignored and it is less than one year you may be able to reopen the divorce on this issue. Again, I urge you to talk to an attorney at once.
Good luck to you,
Mr. Gornbein is absolutely right. You need to talk to an attorney at once. You may also want to ask the attorney who handled your divorce about the pension. It may be, for example, that you got other assets with the same relative value as the pension.
