German pension after divorce – special questions 10
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 if my „ex“ cannot be forced to cooperate and „vanishes“ somewhere at the other end of the world?
With such behavior he could only delay the course of the procedure considerably, but in the end the court will get the information without him – from the pension funds immediately. The „ex“cannot prevent you what getting what is yours. And the outcome of the legal procedure can well be more negative for him than had he cooperated. No good tactics.
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.
