In a Divorce How Couples Can Divide Pension
Need to agree around the pension pot as part of the divorce?
Not sure how to do this
Capitol Family Mediation is the perfect choice
There are a lot of things in life that could go wrong. No one can have full control over their own life.
Because of unforeseen circumstances, relationships do break. When everything fails to resolve the differences between the couples, the inevitable step is the separation.
However, divorce is not only an emotional issue but also a financial issue. So, before making any decision about going for the divorce, you should consider the financial aspect as well.
Splitting of the pensions can be done in several ways. Thus, it is always better to understand what will be good for you before taking the final step.
Pensions That Can Be Divided
You need to begin the work by making a list of the pensions, which you and your ex-spouse currently have. Make a copy of every scheme you have. This may include a personal pension scheme, schemes you have opt for through your career, and the additional pension of the state (excluding the basic pension scheme of the state).
How the things will get divided will depend on your location or the place where you are getting the divorce in the United Kingdom.
Role of the Court in Pension Sharing
The court is the only authorised body to give legal orders for pensions sharing. But, if you and your spouse can settle the matter outside the court then you can split the pension without the intervention of the court. These matters are very complicated. Thus, it would be wise to seek help from a financial adviser or a solicitor before you take any step.
Role of the Pension Adviser
Dissolving of marriage is not only a legal or emotional matter; it is also a financial matter. In this scenario, the role of a financial adviser becomes so very important when you and your spouse are looking to split your pensions. They provide the proper guidance and advice when it comes to pension splitting between the spouses.
