We are experienced in dealing with the complexities of the various pensions products that couples commonly have (occupational, defined benefit and defined dontribution) and the different income and benefits each pension will produce. We look at both the value of the pension as it stands at the time of your separation, as well as what it might produce by way of income in retirement. Pensions are complex arrangements which need specialist advice and we can liaise with financial experts such as actuaries to ensure you get a fair deal.
Modern pensions take a variety of forms, from simple cash or stock investments, held in property, occupational, government pensions or otherwise. When going through a divorce, pension sharing is not the only option available. To unpick all that it’s important to seek specialist legal advice.
Slee Blackwell’s specialist team can offer advice and specific solutions on a range of pensions issues commonly arising on divorce. It is a highly technical area that requires expert legal advice as the true value of pensions and the appropriate adjustments compared to other assets is not always obvious.
