And people wonder why men are fed up with the money grabbing side of women.....seriously, a pension even he didn't know he had...and you can't just say oh well let bygones be bygones....what's it worth? certainly not worth the hatred you will drag up through attempting to revisit this - whether you have a legal case I don't know, I would guess that you did Ok from the original settlement though - just leave the poor sod alone.

I have to disagree with the previous comments. In your shoes Chrissy, I would want to know just how much this pension was worth before deciding how I should proceed. You were owed full disclosure at the time of finances being agreed. If this was an honest oversight on his part, then he will not take issue with you asking for the CETV value. Once you have this, then you can decide what to do about it.

If he did forget about it - it's likely a modest amount.
If on the other hand, it turns out to be a whopping great sum of money I would suspect foul play and pursue the matter.

And no Hatman; that does not make me a 'money grabbing woman'. It makes me a woman asking for a fair settlement from her divorce!

You make a reasonable point I suppose....I just reckon it's going to be a tiny, long forgotten, fund that isn't worth the hassle - anyway I stand corrected and will sit on the naughty step for a while....

Yes it could be modest, but it's only fair that she has that disclosure.
I had a pension from leaving uni till age 30. its deferred, so I don't really think about it and probably won't for another 25 or so years. But it's value certainly isn't insignificant.

Any way, you can get off the naughty step now Hatmanwinking smiley

Your question seems reasonable to me. So what did you settle for? Did he have a pension and you get half of it? Did you have a house that was sold and split the proceeds? Are there any kids from the marriage? What did your consent order say? Do you think he REALLY forgot about this pension (if you know what I mean,)
