The first working Monday after the festive period has now been labelled as 'Divorce Day' due to a peak of internet searches and solicitors reporting the greatest amount of enquiries about divorce from married people. More relationships break down in January than at other times of the year.
Pension rights are taken into account when a court divides assets during a divorce and there are a number of ways this can be done.
If you're thinking about or starting the divorce or dissolution journey and are getting confused about what this might mean for you and your pension, we offer a bespoke appointment service. Our service provides the opportunity to talk through your situation with a technical specialist who will help guide you through the options available to you.
The appointment will cover and explain:
- The pension options available to you during a divorce
- What you’ll need to think about and the things you’ll need to ask
- Provide next steps for you, signposting to helpful organisations and how to access regulated financial advice, should you need it
