Hi.

Has anyone any experiance/knowledge of a 1/2 of a 1/2 pension argument being sucessfull or otherwise . This revolves around one party arguing the other should not be entitled to an 50% automatic share of a 30 year pension as they had only been together for 15yrs of pensionable service .
A colleague intended to use it in his matter but settled prior to it ever being introduced to the proceedings.
Thanks

That is fairly normal. It would also depend on the ages of the parties, the spouse''s pension, wages, assets, etc. But in the absence of other contributing factors, half of the pension built up during the cohabitation and marriage is pretty standard.
