I was granted 50% of my ex husbands pension in our divorce

Resolved Question:

I was granted 50% of my ex husbands pension in our divorce settlement, I have never consistently received it and there are arrears. I know the amount he receives has increased and I can t get any info from him about this. He is now saying he doesn't. Even have to pay this as during our 23 yr marriage we were in the forces and he paid the rent.I s he correct? I don t want to go down the route of solicitors if he is correct. The pension provision is in our consent order.

Hi
In that case yes indeed he does have to pay and you can apply to enforce the Order - and to receive the information that you are fully entitled to
In fact you can arrange to "Attach" his pension so that your share is paid directly to you without reaching your ex at all.
