I wouldn't dream of preventing her getting proper advice. i assume that the wikiivorce solicitors service, to both parties in agreement, is proceesed through a joint solicitor or does it still end up with two solicitors?
The same solicitor can not act for two opposing parties as it's a conflict of interests. If both your daughter and her spouse are using Wikivorce services then they will be assigned to different law firms.
If your daughter is considering using our services I would suggest that she calls our advice line on 01202805020 for more information.
If I'm reading your message correctly a CETV *always* vastly undervalues a DB scheme - is that correct?
My stbx wife's solicitor is asking for one, but SHE is the one with a (paltry, given 6 year's actual working) £67k CETV from her teacher's DB scheme. That's just a 20x multiple, and it also pays 3x the annual as a cash lump sum. To buy an index-linked annuity for a healthy woman from age 60, paying £3,400 plus £10,200 cash would cost over £160k
I have a DC scheme currently valued around £300k. We're both 50.
Can I expect an actuary to simply ask how much it would cost to buy her benefits and compare that amount to my (precarious, illiquid) value?
I simply don't see how such a report could benefit her in this case.
