I've been divorced for 7 years and now happily remarried. I am approaching retirement which will result in a substantial drop in my income and my ability to pay my agreed maintenance. In trying to formulate a reasonable offer to my litigious ex-wife what are the key factors to take into account? Can I gear the offer by reference to the level of pension she might have earned if she had continued her career as a PA or am I obliged to make the offer by reference to my significantly higher fund following a career as a senior corporate executive? Can I exclude post-divorce pension growth if it is the latter?
