Areas of Law / Divorce and Family

I was divorced last year but we still haven’t reached a financial settlement. Will my ex-wife be entitled to a share of the company pension I’ve been drawing for the last five years? Will the fact that she’s living with a new partner affect her entitlement from the family finances?

Your pension will be added to the total matrimonial assets to be divided up, but if there’s plenty to go round it may not be necessary to touch it. The fact that your ex-wife is living with someone else is unlikely to greatly affect what she’s entitled to, but it means you may not have to pay her maintenance. See a solicitor to work out a settlement.
