Is there anything I can do to raise a suspected lie on a D81 form. It’s a pension value and it looks vastly under stated less than 50k pot for final salary pension fund for someone who’s worked 25 years.
You should not agree a Consent Order unless you are confident that you have been provided with the correct information on which to base a settlement. If you are not you should ask for documentation to prove what is being claimed.
Thank you. We made a separation deed which we both signed before the divorce. This deed didn’t contain any specific pension information. It is only now before the Consent Order goes before a judge that this information has been made available. Can I challenge the separation deed even though I signed it?
Final salary pensions are often under valued. How has the pension share been calculated? Have you had both CETV? Is the share based on both pensions added together and then divided in two instead of income equalisation?
My partner has had his calculated by adding his and the exes pensions together and divided in two which I am not happy about but his solicitor is. This means he is required to give her around £50000 whereas her final salary pension (NHS) is actually going to be more than he will receive during retirement, not to mention 3X lump sum payment and his loss of half pension for life if she died whilst still married.
I would insist that both pensions are valued by CETV and then an actuary should value them based on income equalisation. This will cost but could mean a fairer distribution of assetts.
