Pensions On Divorce
If you are going through a divorce and you and your ex-spouse are looking at dividing up your assets, the Court is required to take your pension rights into account.

These days, pensions can be a significant family asset and there are a number of different ways that pensions can be handled on divorce – these are known as pension offsetting, pension attachment or pension sharing.

Deciding which method is most appropriate for you will depend on your individual and family circumstances.

We can help you through the process by advising on the best course of action to ensure that you receive the best possible financial outcome for you and your family.
