Thank you for that clarification. No, unfortunately the property settlement portion that applies to your pension proceeds is entirely controlled by the divorce decree. Survivor's Benefits have statutory restrictions and that is why remarriage is an issue there. However, unless the divorce decree states that his right to a portion of your pension ends on his remarriage, it will not. Although you could sit down with your divorce attorney and discuss the likelihood that a court will revisit this issue now and change the order, it would be unusual for a court to come back now and say remarriage ends his entitlement, since the original court didn't say it did. But again, you can always ask your attorney what a local judge might do.
Please let me know if you need any clarification.
