Can my Ex claim my pension even if we were divorced a long time ago?

If you are divorced, a former spouse has two years from the date of divorce to seek a division of the pension. If they have not applied for a division within that 2 years, then they are statute barred from bringing a claim unless the court grants them permission to file a claim after the time limit has expired. Whether that is granted will depend on the reason for not making the claim in time and how long has passed since the divorce order was granted.
