Hi, thank you for your question. Just a bit more information required to fully assist you:
-Are you in England or Wales?
-Was there a court approved financial settlement alongside the divorce?
-Have you remarried?
Thank you. Was the financial settlement approved by the court?
Are you able to attach the order here using the paperclip icon?
No worries, but this information is required in order for me to provide you correct information. I would suggest that you review your order - if it has clauses which state that neither of you would be entitled to make a claim against the others assets, pensions, income etc, then unfortunately you would not be able to pursue any further claim against him.
If he has not kept to the order you will be entitled to apply to seek enforcement of the order using form D50K and a £155 to court - but I would need further information in relation to the breaches and non-compliance to inform you whether there is any merit to such an application.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you
My name is ***** ***** I have been a solicitor for more than 30 years.
I am afraid that in 1997 it was not possible to have a Pension Sharing Order and when it was introduced this was not back dated.
Accordingly the only claim that you might be able to make woudl rely on your having an open Spouse maintenance Order
I am sorry for any confusion
