Pension Division

Twenty years ago hardly anyone bothered seriously about the value of pensions on divorce. They were regarded as something so far in the future as to be irrelevant. In short marriages and/or for younger people that may still be so but in the majority of cases the pension assets built up during the marriage have now assumed far greater importance.

The powers of the courts are relatively straightforward but the valuation of interests and the ways in which they may be taken into account against each other or offset against other assets can be an extremely complex area. Without expert advice – and often the assistance of an expert actuary – the calculation of an appropriate pension share is a divorce minefield.

Here at SME Solicitors we can give you that advice and help you to understand the confusing and complex terminology which arises in this particular area of the law.
