I have my CETV from my police pension provider and there is still one area that I need clarification on.
My final full pension is based on a number of years service. Of which I transferred some military pension in from well before I met my wife, plus a period of years in police service before I met her. There will also be a number of years to serve after the divorce.
Is she entitled to 50% or is it 50% of our time together? Basically she and I will have been residing together and married for only about 60% of the total amount of my police service.
Hope this makes sense?
Having studied it all 50 % of it all is only a starting point for negoitions, court will look @ length of marriage, previous life stlyle, relative earning capacity, and any healthn problems in either party.
The pension is only part of the picture. Financial settlement on divorce depends on a range of factors. It is about what assets there are, what each party needs (including the needs of any dependent children) for housing and income now and in the future, and how the assets can be divided to meet them.
To advise about your situation we need a fuller picture.
