Go and ask in your commune and be sure that you have accurate information from the people who will first deal with your application.

Yes, better to apply before the F-card expires because now that you are divorced you wont be able to renew based on that. But also have you completed 5 years in Belgium? If not then you are not yet eligible. Also you need to have worked 468 days (roughly 2 1/4 years) in case you didnt have a continuous contract. Best thing is go to the citizenship counter in the Gent stadskantoor as they will assess your case better than anyone else.
