I was granted an Absolute divorced in September. At that time, my ex did not file a claim for ED and we did not have a separation agreement. The judge stated that she was going to grant the divorce but leave the matter “open” since my ex told the judge that she wanted to “contest” the divorce. It is not clear to me what was left “open” and what happens now with my 401k and assets. Does she lose her right to ED since she did not file a claim for ED before the divorce was final? Thanks for your help.
If divorce is granted and there is no pending action for ED then the claim is lost.
