I wonder if anyone could help me (i hope so)
I was married to a soldier for nearly 19 years (still not divorced living apart) and he wont give a figure on his wage or his pension any ideas on how i can find this out, so i can then make a maintence claim and go to CSA. Because he has just cut our payments in half and i could now loose our rented accomadation.
File for divorce and apply to the court for Ancillary Relief. His form E will show all the details you need.
Members of the armed forces and emergency services tend to cling onto their pensions like a limpet. They generally have the mentality that their wages and especially their pensions, are their own ("I am the one risking my life for my country" etc). But in reality, they are no different than a pension or wage from any other employed person, and you will be entitled to a share just the same as if he were a burger flipper.
