Divorce and Pensions
When a couple decide to divorce it is frequently the case that one of them will own valuable pension rights and the other will not. It is often necessary, therefore, for pension sharing between the parties or for some other provision to be made by way of compensation.
The law relating to pensions in divorce is complex and requires specialist knowledge. We have considerable experience in pension sharing on divorce 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.
