Pensions and divorce are two very important terms to remember when looking at the assets of your marriage or civil partnership. In order to assess the value of your pension, it is crucial to compile all the pensions you and your previous partner have ever had and carefully read all the different schemes and how they apply.
Pension and divorce can be a complex combination and it is important to seek legal advice. Pensions, specifically pensions in divorce, can hold different values dependent on the particular scheme they fall into. As potentially it forms a large part of your Matrimonial Assets, it is crucial for you to know exactly how your particular Pension Scheme will affect you.
There are many elements which may change how a divorce can affect your pension. Not all marriages will require you to formally divide your pension. It is specifically dependent on your circumstances.
