Divorce, Civil Partnership Dissolution and Pensions
When a couple end their marriage or civil partnership, often one of them will own valuable pension rights and the other will not. Pension sharing between the parties or for some other provision to be made by way of compensation may therefore be necessary.
The law relating to pensions is complex and requires specialist knowledge. We have considerable experience in pension sharing on divorce or dissolution and in handling complex pension arrangements. Given that a pension can often be the most valuable asset in a marriage, a lack of experience or understanding in this specialised area can lead to an unfair settlement.
