Really, 70:30!! How does it work then. Is the pension split based on its value at the time of separation or divorce? Does it still accrue in value for the ex after divorce until you actually claim it yourself on retirement?
I am interested in an answer to this as well as my solicitor (locally very well respected, senior partner and divorce specialist) that I might get the whole house plus an improved maintenance figure - H currently living in rented flat and wants 30% of house and to give me £500/month. He earns £55K plus £8.5K car allowance plus 20% annual bonus, I earn £31K, and he will not pay for any extra bits for daughter including giving her no spending money to spend a week in a tent in Wales with me whilst he flew out to Bulgaria with his new girlfriend for a week!! Bitter? Me? No surely not!!!
My worry is spending all this money on courts etc and getting close to what we could have agreed anyway...
Did get divorce costs awarded in my favour this week tho so one good thing to come out of it
gettin awarded costs and gettin them are two entirely separate issues....legal aid playing a factor as well as xs attitude....costs awarded to me in 2004 and separate ones in 2006 are being disputed by my x to delay my divorce....sorry to hit you with this...just wanted to warn you
