It was a pension sharing order where she receives 36% of my pension on a monthly basis. Also she never declared she was in a relationship at the time and intended in getting married as soon as the divorce was sorted out.
It was a court order by a judge. My ex also received 50% of my gratuity that I got from the Army. There were no other assets.
She was cohabiting at the time but I am unable to prove it. There were no questions raised about her future.
we were married nearly 16 years, Nothing was asked of her future plans, She did not say she was with anyone else or planning to get married. She was also the one who walked out of the marital home.
purely the fact of the amount of time we were together and the majority of the time I had financially supported her even thou there was no reason why she could not work (Lazy)
I could not tell you that at this moment in time as I am away working in Afghanistan and do not have my papers with me.

Yes it does
I do not know. I do not remember a questionaire

The Court appearance lasted about an hour. There was a couple of hours mediation before we actually went in to the court room between my barrister and her solicitor as she was trying to get more of a percentage of my pension. she was awarded 16/22nds of 50% as we were married 16 years out of my 22 year army career. This took place in May 2012.
I don't know what she ticked.
