My ex reckons i am not entitled to his pension as my earning potential is greater than his. i think he is trying it on as i am only 5 years younger (he is 43) than him and he currently earns 3 times what i do and his pensions is 6 times the size of mine. i will be looking after our 10 year old child and i currently work school hours and am at the top of my payscale. His pension is almost equal to the equity in our house. he is currently offering me a thord of the total value.
Hi, as far as i have been told by my solicitor you can both agree to leave each others pensions alone or ask for your share,i don't think he can say how much he is prepared to let you have!!!! it's a case of how much the judge deems you should be awarded. heck with your solicitor on this but if his pension is far greater and yours isn't its up to you outwiegh whats best financially for you,but be aware if you agree to each other having a share in pensions then if your's rises after so many years he gets a share in the pension as it stands then,not previously,get it all checked out first before you commit yourself,good luck,Sherri.
All the assets are added up and put into an 'imaginary pot'. Both of you will be asked to get CETV valuations done on both pensions, those values will be taken into account.
I have an extremely small CEV value compared to X.
I would have preferred to leave his pension alone and have the majority of the equity as his fund far exceeds that amount.
Once all your financial assets are collated then you will be able to negotiate a fair settlement between you - hopefully!
We were married for nearly 14 years. His pension is substantially more than mine as i stated it is equal to the equity in the house and is 6 times the CETV value of my pension. He works for a financial institution and as such his salary is likely to increase and he has the opportunity to go for promotion in fact it was suggested last xmas.
The major asset at the time of marriage was that he already had a house however we lost money on that house as we were in a negative equity situation when we had to move with his work a year after we married.
