Customer Question

i divorced my husband in 2007 and signed a form stating I would have no claim to his pension (I am now 64 and was unable to take out a private pension as I was a housewife) I feel this should have been explained to me more as I helped over a 32year marriage to pay into this pension fund. I was so upset at the time (my husband committed adultery)that I would have signed anything put in front of me, was so confused. Do I have any chance of sharing this pension pot?
