x's income greater than mine 4 next five years as x has p/t job plus a pension in payment.when x stops p/t job my income(pension and benefits) all in payment will be greater than x's income.x said would claim off my pension then but it's only half amount of his pension..sol thinks struggle and not claim SM SO X WONT CLAIM FROM ME IN FUTURE.MAKES NO SENSE.also suggesting no claims on his pension either in the future.suggests take 50/50.no kids involved.the only future income of mine x can claim against is my pension but his is double mine.Any advice??
plus x has over 25k in personal assets I have less than 4k me no earning capacity at all.
SM is awarded according to the needs of one and the ability to pay of the other. In reality the court is unlikely to order someone on average or below average earnings to pay SM. There is no point in pursuing SM if it's unlikely to be awarded because it just pushes up your legal costs.
