A separation is not only a very emotionally stressful time, it can also lead to a great deal of worry and anxiety regarding your future finances. Assets such as properties and savings and investments need to be shared. As do pensions, which are often a complex and confusing issue, but a hugely important subject for your long term financial wellbeing. We regularly work with clients going through the process of separation and divorce.
This is sometimes as part of a mediation process, where we will impartially explain to both parties in plain English how their pensions work and how they can be shared fairly, and in their best interests.
