Pension dispute following divorce

February 26th 2020

We were instructed by the Wife in relation to matters arising following the breakdown of her marriage. The parties had a jointly owned property where they resided with their two children. The Wife believed the Husband may have assets abroad which were hidden. The Husband had significant debts in his sole name. The Wife worked in the NHS and had a sizeable pension which she wished to retain. The Husband had a very small pension.

Due to the Husband’s refusal to respond to correspondence Court proceedings were commenced. The Husband’s financial disclosure remained incomplete. We represented the Wife at Court where she secured an Order for the Wife to receive the majority of the net proceeds of sale, for the Husband to be responsible for his debts and for the Wife to retain her pension.
