Pension sharing does not necessarily mean a 50/50 but it is often the starting point. Much depends on whether all the other assets have been dealt with. The experience and knowledge of your lawyer and that of your stbx may also come into play. There are no straightforward formulae it will (should) all depend on the circumstances of your case.
A divorce under Scottish Law is different because only the value gained during the marriage is taken into account. The CETV (Cash Equivalent Transfer Value) is a crude but the simplest way of putting a value on the pension.
Sharing Pensions is a website focused on annuity rates, annuity quotes, pensions and retirement planning including long term care annuities. To value a defined benefit pension scheme on divorce, use the online valuation to produce an Actuarial Report and compare this to the CETV from the provider.
