Need some advise.
Divorce finalized went to court for financial settlement. Awarded 65% of the proceeds of the house in return for not touching pension contribution of Ex.
Have just found additional pension statement of 30k (total of 140k disclosed).
I think this would have changed the value of the split to 70/30 in my favour. The 5% equates to a difference of £12k.
What options are open to me.

Move on with your life and be happy. I mean this kindly, let the hurt go and look forward to fun times.

If you go after it, you could lose a lot in legal fees and court costs.
Just think and believe in karma and move on. 💐

Ask your solicitor if it’s worth pursuing. At that level it may or may not be.

And if you’re not yet a pension age it will cost you money now for money you can’t touch until later and when you do 75% of it will be taxable

Speak to a solicitor but 30k in pension funds isnt worth much In real money so you could be on a hiding to nothing. Personally I’d just walk away and not give him any more of your time and effort of no dc are involved.

Move on with your life, don’t give him another thought. Karma will be a bitch. £12k may sound a lot now, but in the scheme of things it really isn’t that much, your solicitors fees will take a healthy chunk out of it should you wish to pursue him for the money.

Count your blessing you got rid, a lot of women would give their back teeth and a kidney to be in your position.

£12k will soon be swallowed in legal costs if you try to re-open the case. You may get costs awarded in your favour if it can be demonstrated that ex deliberately withheld the value of the pension, but it's a big gamble for the extra you think you might receive.

Forget and move on.
