my son who is 41, has 2 children 10 and 7 years old, separated from his wife just over a year ago. She took profits from the sale of their home, the car and all the furniture except a washing machine and a few miscellaneous small items! My son was left with all their debts approx 8k.
They both now own their own homes. 50/50 contact with the children and my son pays £450 maintenance per month (also paying off the debt). He also buys extra clothes/shoes and contributes to school activities such as football, swimming and violin lessons.
My question is: will his ex-wife (they are not divorced yet) be entitled to any of my son's pension (& at what stage?). They had been married 12 years until separation.
