Pension was created by Longforittobeover
I was a nurse and had an occupational pension. Unfortunately I developed breast cancer and had to take ill health retirement. Due to severe complications I will not be able to work again. Therefore my pension income is my only source of income until my state pension kicks in (I’m currently 53)
My lawyer says I fit exceptional circumstances. His lawyer doesn’t care and says my pension is an asset.
I used my pension lump sum to pay off the mortgage so my savings are not significant and all I have got.
I have just had to pay £378 for a PETV as they are entitled to it - really want to avoid paying for an actuary. This includes time before the marriage and after the split.
His pension was a CETV but is less than mine.
Any advice gratefully received
