German pension after divorce – special questions 1
We have already described that spouses have to share the pension rights after the divorce, if one of them has acquired a pension in Germany during the marriage . It is irrelevant where the divorce took place and according to which foreign law (not German law).
What is the situation, if the divorce took place some time ago, maybe even a very long time ago?
Generally we can state that it is irrelevant, it does not matter, how much time has passed since the divorce. The right to have a share of the pension will not end after some time. There is no limitation period or no „statute of limitation“ as the jurists used to say.
We will check, if you have a claim in Germany towards the pension rights of your ex-spouse. And if we come to the result that you have a claim, we will enforce that for you before the German courts.
Thus we can probably considerably improve your old age benefits, maybe even secure your old age through a guaranteed pension from Germany.
