Welcome to Just Answer
I am a Solicitor and will assist you.
I can confirm that your logic is correct from the information that you have provided.
I understand that you have remarried but that it was your divorce petition to the court and that you completed the prayer on the divorce petition. By completing the prayer you have already provided the court with your intention to make a claim in relation to the matrimonial finances and by doing this you have preserved your right to make a claim even though you have remarried.
As there was no previous court order made in relation to the matrimonial finances then you are still able to seek an order now.
The first thing you need to do is to refer to family mediation. You have to do this before you can make an application to the court in relation to the matrimonial finances otherwise the court will reject your application.
Google family mediation in your area and give them a call to self refer.
Mediation will try and help you both through full disclosure and also discussions about divisions. If agreement can be reached at mediation then this can be prepared into a consent order and submitted to the court for approval. This will become legally binding once approved.
If agreement cannot be reached at mediation then the mediator will sign the form that you need to apply to court for a financial order.
