I started my divorce in January this year ...so far it has been slow due to ex refuses to disclose finances on form e probably because he doesn't want his fiances finances included. He refused to go to mediation and now my solicitor has emailed him again asking for disclosure. If he still ignores what happens next?..He was engaged within 6 weeks of me getting him out of my life,and we have no property to divide but he has a pension which is part of the divorce. He doesn't seem to be making things easy and to be honest I'm starting to feel like I shouldn't go for half his pension but as advised by my solicitor I am entitled to at least half which is nothing compared to being with a binge drinker with a heavy cocaine addict that beat me and held a knife at my throat in front of youngest son who was 10 at the time. Is it fair to say that if a consent is made by court it could swing better for me with maybe more than 50%% of his pension? He was 12yrs my junior and I only have 7 working years left with no pension of my own...has anyone else been in this kind of situation please?
Thanks for reply
10 years cohabiting 20 yrs married 3 children aged 21,25 and 27yrs no assets apart from pension which is around £18000.00 I'm 59 he is 47 my monthly income around £1250 his around the same
Hope this helps
Thank you again for reply....he started the scheme in 2006 and it was about £18k in April 2017 so just over 2 years ago. I took out a pension in January this year which has £100 paid in to date which I took out on advise of solicitor as I would need a pension to have the pension sharing order to be paid into. He said originally I could have it all due to he had the love of his woman and didn't need the money but solicitors said because it was a verbal heresay,he has contacted my solicitor since saying he is more than happy for me to have half of it,but he still won't disclose his finances on form e so what happens next ??....this whole situation is draining me emotionally and my health is affected by it .....
