i was married for 20 years, i"m divorce now and my husband re married. Can i still get some of his pention?
Unfortunately, your claim to your ex-husband's pension lies with the terms of your divorce decree or property settlement agreement if you have one. Pensions are typically considered as part of the marital estate and available for division along with the rest of the marital assets. However, if it was not addressed as part of the divorce it is now out of reach for you.

So read your divorce documents and see what they have to say about the pension.

While this may not be the answer you were seeking, it does represent the current status of the law. However, you may be eligible to receive social security based on his record. See:

Good luck.
