When my...

When my wife gave me divorce papers, I agreed to split my pension with her. That was with a company I worked for before before we married, I is any way for me to get that back.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you discussed this with a manager or HR? Or with a lawyer?

So far you are the only one, I have very low income.

Lawyer's Assistant: Are you an "at will" employee? Do you belong to a union?

I think I am "at will " I think . I am not a member of a union

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Just do I have a case?

Is there anything in writing regarding the pension split? Did the court issue a QDRO?

Was this just a discussion between you and your ex?
